About the Forest Model Village...

The Forest Model Village is one of the most enchanting visitor attractions in the Royal Forest of Dean and will appeal to young and old alike.

The project started several years ago, with the challenge of creating a magical visitor attraction to showcase the humour of the Royal Forest of Dean and Wye Valley folk. The project will continue to expand and evolve throughout each year, so no two visits will ever be the same.

In a shady glade, discover distinctive areas themed with humour and mischief, including a new topgraphical 'Forest of Dean' area in miniature, and a 'Giant' area based on Forest themes and folklore. The gardens are populated by six inch high 'Forest folk' going about their everyday business against a backdrop of one twelfth scale (1 inch to a foot!) replicas of local buildings and landmarks. A popular miniature railway steams around the model areas laden with wood and minerals.

Miniature magic can be found at the Forest Model Village in the Forest of Dean
