For a fun family day out, make sure you visit the Godshill Model Village. The Model Village is a 1/10th scale version of the village of Godshill and Shanklin Old Village and Chine, two of the oldest tourist areas on the Isle of Wight.   You can find all of their houses, cottages, churches and pubs in real life for a proper Gulliver experience!  The models are fantastic replicas of these real buildings, made with sand and cement so they weather as they age. They even thatch them just like the real thing using authentic materials and methods.

On a sunny day you can enjoy a cup of tea, then wander around agin to catch the little details you missed first time. So you could easily combine a visit to them with a leisurely wander around the real Godshill village and take a day here.

They pride themselves on having the most detailed landscaped gardens on the Island with over 3,000 ornamental conifers and shrubs.  Attention to detail is key to everything we do.  Many of their trees are coarse bonsai treated to maintain their scale with the buildings…they really are amazing. It is called ‘coarse bonsai’ as they aren’t in pots – you really need to visit to see how manicured they are.
