The Babbacombe Model Village Illuminations

The Babbacombe model village is preparing to kick off its evening illuminations once again, which are set to run throughout the summer season.

The illuminations this summer will run from July 1st through to September 13th, with the park staying opening until 22:30 (last admissions at 21:00). The model village looks stunning during the daytime, but its evening illuminations are a spectacle that you won't want to miss. The sight of thousands of miniature lights, illuminating the little windows and street lamps around the village give it an almost magical feel. This year saw the addition of the new London Shard model and its illuminations are particularly impressive, featuring coloured lights and lasers.

If you're enjoying a break in a local Devon holiday cottage and want to see the illuminations for yourself, access to the event is included in the price of a standard ticket.
