School Visits

Back to homepage

A visit to Bekonscot Model Village and Railway offers your pupils an unforgettable experience and a unique insight into life in rural England in the 1930s.

Our education pack includes pre-visit information, activity worksheets, supporting information for accompanying adults, a souvenir list and a risk assessment. All of which allow you to plan your visit and ensure that your pupils get the most from exploring this enchanting miniature world.

Workshops

To enhance your visit why not book one of our new interactive workshops? Delivered by our experienced Education Officer, the curriculum linked workshops will help your pupils gain a greater understanding of life in the 1930s through object handling, role play and storytelling.

Workshops are offered as part of the standard entry fee but must be booked in advance as availability will be limited at busy times.

Workshops run for 45 minutes and are delivered in our Education Centre. We can accommodate up to 35 children per session. Sessions run at 10.15am, 11.30am and 12.45pm during term time.
