The Model Village in Bourton on the Water is the only grade II listed model village in the country.
During the current pandemic, the Model Village toilets are closed and changes have been made to the entry and exit. Card payment only please.
This wonderful model of the actual village built of Cotswold stone to one-ninth scale opened in 1937.
The river Windrush flows under Bourton's famous bridges providing a beautiful backdrop to the miniature beeches, cherries and chestnut trees. You'll also hear music in the tiny model church and can wander the lanes peering into all the different buildings.
Due to narrow paths and steps there is limited access for wheelchairs, and pushchairs, walking frames, rollators and mobility scooters will not be able to access the Model Village.
