Do I have to book tickets online?
You can book in advance or pay when you enter.
Where do we park?
There is free parking in St Teresa’s church carpark which is directly opposite the entrance to Bekonscot Model Village. At particularly busy time we also have use of St Michaels church car park which is a short walk away. Alternatively, there is pay and display parking in Beaconsfield town centre and at Beaconsfield station.
Is the village accessible for wheelchair/pushchair users?
Yes, with the exception of the raised walkway. Some of the paths are narrow so pushchairs can be left in our buggy store. We also have 2 wheelchairs available for use, free of charge, by visitors.
Can we bring a picnic?
We have a tearoom serving hot and cold food, drinks and snacks. Picnics are not permitted, but visitors with specific dietary needs are welcome to bring their own food with them.
Can I bring my dog?
No, assistance dogs only are permitted in the model village. This restriction is necessary to ensure the safety and enjoyment of Bekonscot by all our visitors.
What is Gift Aid and why does it cost more?
The 10% Gift Aid donation (above the standard entry price) allows Bekonscot, as a registered charity, to then claim back the basic rate of tax (that the donor has already paid on their income) on the full value of the tickets. This means that for every £1 of ticket sold via Gift Aid, Bekonscot can claim an additional 25p. Gift Aid donations are voluntary and all Bekonscot’s surplus funds are distributed annually to a variety of local and national charities.
How long should I allow for a visit?
We recommend you allow two hours to explore the model village. Taking time for a coffee from the tearoom and a ride on the miniature railway means that most people stay about two to three hours.
Can I leave the village and then come back in later?
If you retain your receipt then you can pop out and return, but on the day of entry only.
