Step into a world of miniature marvels!
NEW - Mythical Kingdom area is now open
Bring back those magical childhood memories as you explore a quaint and quirky representation of England through five decades at Babbacombe Model Village. Meander your way through four acres of beautiful miniature gardens and discover many fun characters and animated features - from trains to moving vehicles and even a fire-breathing dragon.
Babbacombe Model Village is equally as famous for its glorious gardens that help to set it aside as one of Europe’s Premier Model Villages. The gardens provide a stunning backdrop for the hundreds of miniature models and animated scenes. For an added twist there are always fun characters to search for as you explore the gardens.
Our 9-hole crazy golf course adds an exciting extra dimension of fun for the whole family. The course is great fun for adults & children and is FREE with admission tickets.

BY CAR: Follow signs to Torquay/Torbay from the A38, A380 or A385. Follow the brown signs to Model Village once you are in the Torquay/Torbay area. We are situated 2.5 miles from Torquay harbour in the pretty area of St. Marychurch/Babbacombe
Satnav postcode: Our postcode is TQ1 3LA, however this will lead you to the Hampton Avenue side of the local authority car park which is no entry. This car park is accessed from St Marychurch Road (A379). Use your satnav but please follow the brown signs when you get within half a mile.
Car Parking: There is a pay & display local authority owned car park adjacent to the model village. This car park serves the whole area and does not belong to the model village, so you will need to 'pay and display'. If the main car park is full, follow the brown sign to overflow parking which is close by in Chilcote Close (about 3-4 mins walk from us).
