90th anniversary attractions at Bekonscot Model Village

In August, the Bekonscot Model Village in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, will be celebrating 90 years since Mr Roland Callingham welcomed the first visitors to the model village and railway that he built in his garden.

The model village opened its doors for the 2019 season on February 16, and Beconscot New Town, with its funicular railway and Underground station, has become a popular new addition to the village.

This superb Art Deco Hanton Road Underground station can now be seen at the charming Bekonscot Model Village as it celebrates 90 years since it opened to the public. 

This year, visitors should also look out for some other new buildings, based on local businesses as they would have looked in
the 1930s.
