It’s a small world. Not in the jaunty, singing animatronic sense of the popular ride at the Walt Disney parks. But with cricket-on-the-green, choir-boys-in-the-chapel through and through Britishness. It all started with one man, a certain Mr Roland Callingham, who began building some model houses to complement his outdoor model railway, and just kept on building. With scale models of everything from cottages to castles, windmills to race courses, Beckonscot presents a panoply of Thirties life frozen in time.

Star attractions As well as watching the tiny railway trains clickety-clack by, Beckonscot has a light railway so larger passengers can go for a ride.

Family X-Factor So many places to go, so many people to see. A visit to Beckonscot is a multitude of days-out rolled into one. And a playground and remote-controlled boasts the fun factor further.

Not many people know this but… Beckonscot is the world's oldest model village.
