Bekonscot Model Village & Railway

Bekonscot Model Village & Railway is the world’s oldest original model village, opening for the first time in 1929.

With 90 years of history, huge model railway, and finely detailed model buildings Bekonscot is a great day out for everyone.

Stuck in a 1930s timewarp, seven individual villages and hamlets, each with their own character, are nestled within 1.5 acres of immaculate gardens. Our historic gauge 1 model railway winds its way around the village for over 8 scale miles with up to 10 classic locos running at any one time.

In addition you can take a ride on the Bekonscot Light Railway, learn more about the history of Bekonscot and the 1930s in our interactive Education Centre or relax with light refresments in our tea room while the children enjoy the play area.

Open every day from 10.00am until 5.30 pm between mid February and the end of October. Check our website for exact opening and closing dates.

Here at hiya bucks we go on regular walks exploring the local towns, villages, public footpaths, gardens, rivers, lakes and more! We love getting out and about discovering new places to visit and we thoroughly enjoy going to local events and getting involved with the community. We hope to inspire others to step out of their daily routines and see more of our Beautiful Buckinghamshire.
