In the grounds of Godshill Old Vicarage, visitors can be charmed by the beautiful Isle of Wight Model Village. The Model Village is a timeless place to escape the busy world outside and to see two of the Island’s most popular tourist towns in 1/10th scale.

This unique attraction is home to an array of handcrafted model buildings. Visitors can explore Godshill and Shanklin Old Village in miniature, including houses, churches and pubs, as well as figures depicting Island life from days gone by. The Godshill Model village is a charming, fascinating, and fun day out for all the family.

Godshill Model Village Isle of Wight

Last year, the Wight In Bloom Small Tourist Attraction Award was won by the Model Village. The Isle of Wight is home to an array of truly stunning gardens, so this was quite an achievement. Godshill Model Village is set in two acres of artistically landscaped gardens, home to a number of unusual and ornamental trees and shrubs. It’s a truly beautiful display – a must for any garden enthusiast.
