Bekonscot Model Village is a haven of miniatures – children are just the right height to appreciate its Lilliputian charms. Spread across one and a half acres, its 200 small buildings, 1,000 animals, 3,000 inhabitants and hundreds of tiny vehicles are a delight, with lots of visual jokes to enjoy. Look out for the line of knotted sheets dangling from the prison window, the wedding photographer struggling to keep the guests in order, the WI meeting in the town hall or the shopfront names like Argue & Twist the solicitors. The six separate villages are stuck in a 1930s timewarp, so parents and grandparents can enjoy a bit of nostalgia too. A model railway runs through the site over bridges and through stations, and there’s also a ride on train that takes you around the site.
