Everybody loves a model village, and Godshill Model Village is set in two acres of scenic landscaped gardens. Wander around this peaceful attraction and peer amidst the 300 trees and shrubs to glimpse the world in miniature.
The models depict the resorts of the Isle of Wight in miniature, and the model railway chugs its way between them. Like all good model village’s, this one has been created with a smile and it’s one of the island’s quaintest family attractions. The model village is open every day between April and October, and you’ll find it on Godshill High Street.
Tickets include free re-entry to the attraction for another week, so if you don’t manage to take in everything there is to see (or you just fancy another stroll around spotting what you missed) you’ll be free to return. There’s a picnic area for those of you who want to make a day of it, and there are few spots that make a nicer place to enjoy some al fresco fodder than beside the world in miniature.
Godshill Model Village is open from 10am – 5pm and you’ll need at least an hour to make sure you take in the whole attraction. Why not take the opportunity to explore the real Godshill Village while you’re there? It’s as picturesque as the models!
