Map & Directions

Road Directions

BY CAR

Follow signs to Torquay/Torbay from the A38, A380 or A385 Follow the brown signs to Model Village once you are in the Torquay/Torbay area

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 (A379). 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).
