Babbacombe Model Village

Babbacombe Model Village has been a favourite English Riviera attraction since 1963. Visitors adore this miniature marvel spread across a mammoth four acres in the cliff top Babbacombe Downs area. The attraction has a mini illuminations, award-winning gardens, wind farms and even a hydro electric dam! Railways, historic UK landmarks, miniature animals and vehicles with sound effects all feature in this classic model village – look out for heritage landmarks like Stonehenge, quaint English village scenes and a mix of miniature architectural styles from Medieval and Tudor to Georgian and Victorian.

Renowned as a ‘masterpiece of modelling’, children through the decades have thrilled to quirky features like the fire breathing dragon perched on a Medieval castle. The mature landscape gardens are award-winning, dotted with miniature scenes and lots of hidden characters including a ghost in the tower, a chimney sweep and a man being chased by a bull! Wally and his friends are also here. Pick up Wally gifts in the great on-site gift shop and enjoy refreshments in the tearooms.
