Godshill Model Village on the Isle of Wight

Come to Godshill Model Village for a fun family day out!

All of the houses, cottages, churches and pubs can be found in real life, as the Model Village is a 1/10th scale version of the village of Godshill and Shanklin Old Village and Chine! The models are beautifully accurate replicas of these real buildings. They’re constructed with sand and cement using authentic materials and methods (they even have real thatched roofs) so they weather as they age, just like the real thing! The models are extremely detailed, with over 3,000 ornamental conifers and shrubs.

Where can I find Godshill Model Village?

It can be found in the ancient village of Godshill, on the southeast of the island.

They suggest that you spend an hour or so at the Model Village, to fully appreciate all the details that are on show. When the weather allows, they do offer hot drinks and snacks at the Nammet Hut to accompany your stroll around the Model Village. They suggest you tour the village of Godshill first, then head onto the Model Village to experience it in a different way!
