Overview
More
Open from March to October. Authentic retro attraction that will take you on a trip down memory lane. Beautifully recreated models of Godshill and Shanklin Old Villages as they were in the 1920's and 30's. Passionate about details, the models are true representations of the houses, cottages and pubs you can still see in the 'real world'. NHS Partner Garden supporting the work of the Royal Horticultural Society. The gardens are packed with conifers and shrubs in the Japanese style of Niwaki, that will make you want to dash home and start gardening... Our customers tell us we inspire them or that they would like to take one of our gardeners home with them!

Well worth the time to visit, along with the village it took us about 4 hours total. The village walk is a bit dangerous so need to be on guard, but well worth the visit for a bit of fun

Have not been to Godshill for about ten years but loved it and the model village just as much as before. Had an excellent lunch there.

A must to visit. One of the great attractions on the I. O. W. Disabled friendly. Even somewhere to have a cup of tea. One of the nicest villages.

We were impressed by the details and the wonderful trees and contrasts. The admission fee of 5 pounds was a bargain.

Initially I wasn't sure whether to go into the model village, it's about £5 admission. But I am so glad I did! It is excellent, the quality of the buildings and garden, and precision to detail is very impressive. It's immaculate. Even the plants and...More

We spent an hour here and really enjoyed it. My 2 year old loved the model train and my 4 year old enjoyed the squirrel spotting activity. Lovely staff and beautiful and fun surroundings. Worth noting that the cafe is cash only!

There is a website. Tripadvisor doesn't like links, so we can't put it down directly, but the website is modelvillagegodshill followed by the usual for a UK company. There is a page for information on groups, and it says to... More
