A trip to Godshill Model Village, Isle of Wight

Hello there,

I recently went over to the Isle of Wight for a couple of days. Now I live in Southampton so you could say the island is on our doorstop - and really, it is!

To take the car on the ferry from Southampton only takes an hour and it feel likes like you're transported back in time. This was a favourite place for day trips and holidays as a child so I love to go back whenever possible.

Now despite best laid plans and all that - our trip was cut short by car problems, but even so, in the short time we were there we still managed to visit Godshill, a beautiful village which always looks like something from a postcard.

A childhood favourite is Godshill Model Village. I hadn't visited this for years so was interested to see what I remembered and if it was as good as I remembered!

Now where else can you see dinosaurs taking a ride on a train?

Look closely, that's Father Christmas on top of there....

Was it as good as when I was child? I really think it was. I was surprised at how much I remembered like the music coming from the model churches and the model of the model of the model... And it's obvious how much care and attention the owners give to the village, the scenes were immaculate and every little detail had been thought of.

Can I go back please?

Thanks for reading
