It will be forever England here. Bekonscot is a model village in the town of Beaconsfield. Created by Accountant Roland Callingham, this little town has existed since the mid 1920's and was opened to the public in 1929. Since then the village has existed as a 1930's idealised vision of England. Its a great day out.

Bekonscot is supposed to be the oldest model village in the world. It is actually more than just one village - there are six communities linked by miniature trains. I used to come here a lot when I was a child and was fascinated by the trains.
It was created in the 1930s and provides a snapshot of what English life was like in that period. There have been later additions such as a model of 'Green Hedges', the Beaconsfield home of children's author Enid Blyton, which was demolished to make way for a housing estate.

Quite a few of Beaconsfield's commercial premises have been taken over by chain restaurants. The former cinema now seems to be a Prezzo. This branch of Italian chain Zizzi is in a former pub in the Old Town. I don't think the conversion has been entirely a happy one, as the Zizzi modern style décor sits uneasily with the remaining period style, and more importantly, the layout isn't ideal. This may have been a factor in the service, which was slower than I am used to in other branches.
The food is the standard Italian chain, perfectly edible, with mainly pasta and pizza dishes, but it's not outstanding.
Favorite Dish: I had the squid ink linguine, which tasted very good, but was slightly overcooked.
