About Us

Enchanting illuminations

at Babbacombe Model Village

Babbacombe Model Village is transformed in the evenings with thousands of miniature lights - they really do have two attractions in one!  The illuminations enable you to see what goes on inside many of the models and, as dusk develops into darkness, the illuminations beautifully light up the gardens and models creating an enchanting atmosphere. 

Visit Day & Evening - We highly recommend you experience the Model Village during the daytime too. During the day, you will see the intricate details of the models and scenes set in beautiful gardens and children can enjoy doing a character hunt, following one of our spotter sheets.

One Ticket - Two Great Visits FREE RETURN VISIT WITHIN 7 DAYS

..... During your first visit, keep your admission receipt and, before you leave, obtain a photo-pass from the gift shop. This will enable you to return once for free within 7 days. If you can't visit twice, then why not come early evening see the gardens by day, then again once the lights come on. See the Model Village website for full details.

Illuminations are every Thursday evening from Easter to October, Also Mondays to Fridays in August. With special illuminations for Halloween and Christmas.
