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.
