Godshill Model Village Tours

Godshill Model Village
An engaging and quirky attraction, Godshill Model Village features painstakingly re-created models of Godshill Old Village and Shanklin Old Village as they were in the 1920s and ‘30s. Made with great attention to detail, the models are faithful representations of two of the Isle of Wight’s most charming villages.

The Basics

Occupying the grounds of Godshill Old Vicarage, this family-run attraction re-creates the island’s most popular tourist towns at 1:10 scale, including handcrafted model houses, churches, and pubs, as well as tiny figures depicting island life from days gone by. The 2-acre (0.8-hectare) site also features artistically landscaped gardens, home to a number of unusual and ornamental trees and shrubs, that provide a beautiful backdrop for the models.
