What's New at Torquay's Model Village
NEW Evening Illuminations Experience 2021!
Coming August - We are working on a major revamp of our evening illuminations, with lots of new light effects illuminating the perimeter trees, surrounding you in a spectacle of enchanting colours. We are also adding new lights and effects in amongst the models and displays, which will include miniature fire effects and other special effects for evening visits.
What came new in 2020
A model in the style of The Royal Crescent in Bath.
If you haven't been for a while - here's what was added in recent years
Peek Inside House
ADDED MAY 2019 - Our newly developed peek inside house is now on display indoors and beautifully lit up. Come along, be a ‘nosey neighbour’ and see what the little folk are up to indoors, including one or two familiar faces. Be aware though – you may see more than you bargained for.
ADDED MAY/JUNE 2019 - Our newly planted wildflower garden is taking shape and should start to grow and mature over the coming weeks. Framed by a fabulous new flower mural and complete with our own 'Air Bee n Bee' residence, all skillfully created by the team at the model village. The residence is only taking bookings for bees though, not humans!
