Fun for all the family at Wimborne Minister's Model Town
Wimborne Minster's Model Town & Gardens is an amazing family day out located in Wimborne.
Our model town is famous the world over for the ‘life like’ replicas it contains. You’ll be amazed at the painstaking length the designers have gone to. You can even see the individual items the little shops have on sale!
Besides the astonishing model village we have a number of other attractions.
• Giant chess game
• Thomas and friends model railway
• Putting lawn
• Plant shop
• Children’s playhouses
• Tea rooms
• Gift Shop (with unique and interesting gifts!)
Whilst the children are having fun in the children’s playhouses, it’s the perfect time for the adults to visit the tea rooms. You can relax and enjoy our freshly prepared food and drink.
Plus, if it’s a nice day why not sit out on our sunny patio overlooking the whole garden with a delicious soft drink?
We have the perfect private area to hold a children’s birthday party. Children find the model village fascinating and always have a lot of fun. Plus, they’re learning about the local area at the same time.

“I loved doing the quiz the last time I went here and it's always a big draw. It's strange to see which businesses have survived the test of time and see what used to be in the town long ago. The restaurant is fantastic serving some great food at very good prices. A truly lovely way to spend a summer afternoon.”Report

“A truly great place for all the family to visit and enjoy. Not open all year round, but when it does it's a great tourist attraction as well as bringing in local visitors too. The shop is full of wonderful items that would make great gifts and the restaurant is something else entirely They serve great homemade food and the prices are so low they are ridiculous. But I'm not complaining, as it's a cheap way to feed the kids during the summer holiday.”Report

“This is a fantastic place to take your kids and allow them to explore Wimborne as it used to be. Even my wife, who was born here, never knew about some of the buildings that used to be in the town. If you fancy stretching your mind you can do the quiz where you have to hunt for things around the model village finding them and ticking them off. The restaurant is great, serves a good range of food at a very reasonable price and the shop is full of fantastic gifts. It's a place you would go to again and again.”Report

“This is a fantastic place and can be enjoyed by all the family, providing a great day out...and the best thing is, it's right on our doorstep. The model town itself is fascinating, being able to see how the town is set out, and finding places I never knew were there in the real town (do I really walk around with my eyes closed?). They also have a very good restaurant that delivers good portions for a cheap price, so is excellent value for feeding the family. You might even want to consider buying a season ticket allowing you to go back again and again all for £16. Bargain!”Report

“It remains to be seen if they will add a mini Waitrose, but it is a great attraction for both kids and adults. I think a season ticket is about £16 so you can go back as often as you want. I also couldn''t believe the price for a children''s meal...less that £2....bargain.”Report
