Godshill Model Village, Godshill

Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web
Godshill Model Village is home to three sequentially smaller scale village models of itself. The actual village is home to almost 1,500 people. There visit the parish church where you'll see a medieval mural of a Lily crucifix and William Morris' stained-glass windows. Refresh yourself at Griffin Pub and make your way through the Griffin-shaped maze.The first scale model of the actual village is one-tenth the its size and houses a second model of itself, and a third model rests inside that: this is the smallest of all. This last oddity requires careful investigation to appreciate its detailed craftsmanship.

  • £1.00 for a program, Admin fee and you can walk round the whole site in 5 minutes Didn't think it was great, should of spent money elsewhere visiting something value for money 
  • Awesome lovely model village. All age people can enjoy, specially kids. Well maintained nice and clean environment. Each and every models are beautiful. To hard work done to create a model. Model working trains is the main attraction for kids and elders. Very nice place.
  • Absolutely charming place to take the Children (or just yourselves!) As a family, we loved it! Great attention to detail & very cleverly created. Really enjoyed the experience. Lovely staff & my children thoroughly enjoyed the gift shop & spending their pocket money there on very well priced and a good range of gifts. Highly recommended. Really well run!
  • Lovely little model village to have a wander round. Took the kids and they enjoyed it but it is pretty quick to get around. Worth a trip though if you like this sort of thing.
  • We took the grandchildren today. They loved it. 4 year old was fascinated with the houses and little people. I have a small mobility scooter and had no problems getting round.
  • Had a lovely time here, took about an hour and a half to get round. Really nicely done, incredible gardening!
