Take time out from the hustle and bustle of every day life and feel on top of the world as you see it recreated in miniature at the Babbacombe Model Village in Torquay.

A great day out for all the family, enter a world of miniature marvels, view thousands of miniature buildings, people and vehicles capture the essence of England’s past, present and future, all set in four acres of award-winning gardens. 

Over 400 models of houses, stately homes, factories, shops, entertainment venues and environmental features. There are a variety of architectural styles from medieval through Shakespearean to Victorian, along with railways, vehicles and some well-known monuments and landmarks. Not forgetting, of course, 13,000 miniature people who live in the village.

DON'T MISS - Our new 9-hole crazy golf course will add an exciting extra dimension of fun for the whole family. The course is great fun for adults & children and is FREE with admission tickets.

Adults love the humorous representation of British life over the last 6 decades and the award-winning gardens. Children love all the miniature characters and enjoy following the spotter sheet to see what they can find (pick up your free spotter on arrival).

To add an extra dimension of fun, humour and puns prevail throughout the park, some very obvious, some very subtle, but a quick visit is never enough to spot it all. See if you can you spot the man mowing the lawn, or can you spot the ghost in the tower - many visitors in a hurry miss it!

There are several fun indoor features too, such as the 'Little Enders' soap set, the Victorian Snowy village and the World of movie miniatures.

Some of the more favourite models include: the Royal crescent, the house on fire, Stonehenge, a fire breathing dragon, the model railway, the football stadium and the beach and lake, complete with its own naturist beach (summer months only of course!).
