Godshill Model Village, Godshill

#1 of 41 in Outdoors in Isle of Wight
Must see · Garden · Landmark
Godshill Model Village is home to three sequentially smaller scale village models of itself. The actual village is home to almost 1,500 people. There visit the parish church where you'll see a medieval mural of a Lily crucifix and William Morris' stained-glass windows. Refresh yourself at Griffin Pub and make your way through the Griffin-shaped maze.The first scale model of the actual village is one-tenth the its size and houses a second model of itself, and a third model rests inside that: this is the smallest of all. This last oddity requires careful investigation to appreciate its detailed craftsmanship.

  • Great for all ages. My 2 year old loved the miniature railway. My 8 year old daughter loved doing the quiz sheet provided. We liked looking at all the details. Would have liked to spend longer in Godshill itself too as it seemed quite quaint. Went to the fossil shop next door too - shells and shiny stones to buy if that's your thing.
  • It’s a little gem in the IOW, a must go attraction to spend and hour or two. There a nice restaurants, tea rooms and country shops around. Old smithy car park is free and spacious enough, could get busy though. The village is a well maintained miniature model village and garden. Attention to details is visible. It has an operating model train as well, kids would love it. Though an open park, there are a couple of shower shelters as well.
