We are situated 2.5 miles from Torquay harbour in the pretty area of St. Marychurch/Babbacombe

Satnav postcode:
Our postcode is TQ1 3LA, however this will lead you to the Hampton Avenue side of the local authority car park which is no entry. This car park is accessed from St Marychurch Road. Use your satnav but please follow the brown signs when you get within half a mile.

Car Parking

There is a pay & display local authority owned car park adjacent to the model village. This car park serves the whole area and does not belong to the model village, so you will need to 'pay and display'. If the main car park is full, follow the brown sign to overflow parking which is close by in Chilcote Close (about 3-4 mins walk from us).


Get the bus to St Marychurch, we are just 3-4 minutes walk from/to the bus stops - follow the black & gold pedestrian signs.

NOTE: We try to keep this public transport information up to date, but services do change and they don't usually notify us. This information is a guide and we recommend checking the websites. To avoid disappointment, ensure you are aware of our opening times and allow plenty of time for your journey. During the peak periods, due to heavy traffic volumes in south Devon, it is quite possible for car or bus journeys to take 20-30 minutes longer than anticipated.
