Wimborne Minster Model Town & Gardens

With the buildings completed over 60 years ago, the magnificent 1/10th scale models continue to surprise and amaze visitors from all over the world with their superb quality and realism. Re-creating the historic market town of Wimborne Minster exactly as it was during the 1950s, you can get really close up and even touch the buildings. The fun family worksheets suitable for all age groups which are provided free of charge, lead you through the many Streets and Lanes including the colourful prize-winning gardens, searching for those elusive clues. Eventually you approach Wendy Street, a designated safe play area for younger visitors. The four Wendy Houses provide hours of amusement while the grown-ups sample the fresh, mouth-watering homemade fayre available from the Tea Rooms which overlook the gardens.
