Our Visit to Bekonscot Model Village
Long before becoming a mum I would daydream about places I would take my children in the future, many of those being places I had enjoyed myself as a child. Today was one of those days where another of my little mini-dreams came true as we visited Bekonscot Model Village.
Everything went to plan and it was so enjoyable. We meandered through the village – with so much to take in, the boys were in awe a lot of the time! I think their favourite part was seeing the trains running alongside them and in and out of the tunnels.
The simple thing of taking a picnic meant we avoided waiting and queuing for suitable food. We just sat down and ate when we were ready. There was even a picnic storage area on the way in, to save carrying around a large bag.
The paths are narrow, so you’re probably best without a buggy if possible. Double buggies wouldn’t be very easy to use at all.
As well as seeing the village on foot, for £1 per passenger you can ride the miniature railway. There is also a playground with equipment suitable for all ages.
Toilets and baby change facilities available
