Babbacombe Model Village in Torquay opened in 1963 and has been a highlight of many a child's trip to the south west.

There's a miniature railway station, football stadium, landscaped gardens, Merrivale Castle & Medieval Village and even Stonehenge. There will be a model Olympic stadium too in time for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
