Bekonscot is a toy village located in the English town of Beaconsfield, in Buckinghamshire. Spread out over 1.5 acres, this Lilliputian village with miniature buildings artfully created with wood, stone, metal, and glass, its well kept gardens and a huge model railway has been fascinating visitors for more than 80 years. Indeed, Bekonscot is believed to be the oldest original model village in the world.

Bekonscot was created by Beaconsfield resident, accountant Roland Callingham who in the late 1920s developed the master plan for his miniature empire as an addition to his large rock garden of his Buckinghamshire home. The model was originally planned simply to decorate this garden where he entertained his high-profile guests of politicians, minor royals, aristocrats and the movers and shakers of the era. It was only after 1930 that its existence became widely known, catching the imagination of the press and public alike.
