Kings Gardens Southport is the home of the only outdoor Model Railway Village in the UK. If you are visiting the town and your kids are mad about trains then this is the place for you.

Since 1996 Southport Model Railway Village has attracted hundreds of thousands of families and model train enthusiasts from all over the world. This spectacular attraction consists of beautiful vistas and fabulous panoramic views of the miniature landscape and railway layout.

Based upon typical southwest Lancashire architecture the site consists of a country scene, village and town. Movement is generated by one of the largest 45mm garden railway systems in the UK.

It is not unusual for children to want to spend all day with their parents or grand parents, whilst just following their favorite model train as it meanders around the 1.5 acres of beautiful miniature landscape.


It is also not unusual for children to return the next day with another member of the family or continuously visit each week from spring through till the end of season - equally just as enthusiastic as on their first day.

With plenty of bench recesses, parents can keep a close eye on their children whilst relaxing having a picnic or just unwinding. Together with the peace and tranquility of the sheltered and highly secured site, the Model Railway Village has become every popular with people who prefer the quality side to life.

The site has been designed for easy access for wheel chairs and double buggies and includes a tastefully laid-out Teashop and Gardens with full Toilet facilities for the disabled. When in Southport, the Model Railway Village is an attraction that every model train and LGB garden railway enthusiast must visit.
