My husband and I bought our kids here on Saturday as we’d heard good things about it. It took us an hour to get here and we did struggle trying to find the car park but that’s a Sat Nav issue! The parking is free,...More

Our grandson can't visit often enough. There is so much to entertain him. He likes the trains best, but there is the play area, the train ride and radio controlled boats. The detail of the models is fascinating, you are unlikely to take it all...More

I went here with a friend and we adored it. The attention to detail is superb. Going with children I think you miss bits and pieces but taking your time to walk around you really appreciate the workmanship and humour behind many of the models.

I went with a friend and our toddlers, both under 2. Within minutes, I realised they were probably too young for Bekonscot as we had to constantly pull our kids off the houses and pick them up from the grass. They couldn't understand why they...More

This is a masterfully crafted attraction, with astonishing attention to detail. There is so much to see and so much to miss, so that you have to do the circuit at least twice. The elevations are good so that you can see each modelled scene...More

There are picnic tables on a small grassed area and a cafe. There is room to keep your buggy with you around the village. There is also a good play area.
