Award Winning Gardens
One of Europe's Premier Model Villages and one of Torquay's most beautiful gardens.

Ever changing gardens and miniature landscaping at its best

Babbacombe Model Village on the english riviera is famous for its miniature landscaped gardens, leading it to be branded as one of Europe's Premier Model Villages and one of Torquay's most beautiful gardens.

The gardens cover nearly four acres and require on-going attention throughout the year by our team of professional gardeners. This ensures that they are kept in an immaculate condition and the scenes are kept to scale.

Whether a keen garden enthusiast or just a casual admirer the beautiful landscaping never fails to impress our visitors.

Hundreds of varieties of plants, shrubs and trees and many new ones planted each year mean that the gardens are ever-changing and offer a visual delight throughout the seasons. Colourful in the summer with pretty bedding plants and even during the winter months the abundance of conifers makes this a lovely green and lush visitor experience.

You may even want to take home your own plants carefully nurtured here at the Model Village and on sale in our gift shop.
