miniature railway

Bekonscot is the world’s oldest and original model village. The 1.5 acre site features an extensive gauge 1 model railway which links seven different miniature towns and villages, all of which represent life in rural England as it would have been in the 1930s. The model village and railway offer a variety of opportunities for learning across the curriculum. They provide an unforgettable experience for children and a unique insight into life, transport and industry from nearly 100 years ago.
