Attraction details
Owner description: Babbacombe Model Village is Torquay's most popular and visited attraction. Representing British life and culture over the last five decades all in miniature. Animated scenes, along with touches of very English humour bring it all to life. Taking you on a fun, informative and nostalgic trip through the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s to present day, it has appeal for all ages. Famous for its lovely setting in 4 acres of award-winning gardens that are a delight to experience all year round. NOTE: Opening times signify the admission times - opening to latest entry.

Stunning setting in a valley, not on the flat like most model villages. Paid for two hours parking and had to leave, otherwise would have been here for twice as long. Plenty of unexpected laughs as you are going around, model quality and variety is amazing. All of the children visiting were loving it. Planning now to go back at night to see the illuminated version.

This was easily the best thing to do in Torquay. The models are super detailed and if you pay close attention to the detail, little jokes and puns are hidden about. You can even claim a free return visit to see the village again at night when it's lit up.
