Wimborne Minster Model Town And Gardens

Wimborne Model Town is a 1/10th scale of the centre of Wimborne as it was in the 1950s which opened in the 1951. The charity attraction, mainly staffed by volunteers, sits on a 2/3 acre site with mature gardens and complementary facilities. With increasing details added over the years, you can get really close up and even touch the buildings. Peer into the Butchers, the Ironmongers, the Bakery and the Fishmongers, not forgetting the stunning interior of the Minster Church. The fun family quizzes suitable for all age groups which are provided free of charge, lead you through the many Streets and Lanes including the colourful NGS listed gardens, searching for those elusive clues.
