Went over to Beckonscot Model village yesterday, my first time there so didn’t know what to expect.
It was kind of neat I guess, though I was a little miffed at it’s 4.5 tripadvisor rating.
The entire area was significantly smaller than I expected (even for a model village) and it looked like a lot of it could use some repairs or general cleanup, just about every water feature had thick forests of algae for example.
Some of it was pretty cool though, with an impressive amount of detail on some of the buildings and rooms, and little things like moving cable cars and a smoking building with firetrucks outside.
It was also rather entertaining seeing gigantic fat pigeon nestled in among the tiny figures, and similarly some huge koi carp swimming around underneath the tiny bridges – beckonscot would truly be a terrifying place to live.
