Godshill Model Village, Godshill

4.6
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Godshill
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.

  • This is an amazing place. The whole village in miniature. The attention to detail is quite astonishing. Takes only about 30 minutes to go around. It’s a great relaxing little ponder. Even if you have kids they have a few fun challenges to do as you go around. When you get your ticket, it stays valid for a few months and you can return as many times as you like for free.
  • Visited as a child. Continues to be a brilliant model village. Wedding at the church, cricket, archery, boules, scouts camping, farmers, thatched roofs, shops, even g scale trains. Something for everyone to see. Lovely!
  • Happy friendly staff always go above and beyond to help. Well maintained. A great place for the family to visit.
  • I came here with my parents & baby sister years ago. This was a nostalgic visit but I remembered some of the village & was impressed with how clean & up to date the models were. A lot of care is taken here.
  • Beautiful Godshill well worth a visit.Wide range of shops and goods.Adequate range of food and lots car parking space.Visit also other shops and Godshill Church.If without a car several buses will get you there from other parts of island.Highly recommended...
