Part Two of Summer 2011 in Isle of Wight, UK
As i mentioned in my previous entry of Part 1 , i will share about other places in Isle of Wight that i had visited last summer.
God’s Hill is one of the attraction on the Isle of Wight. It is actually historical for the church member’s where they claimed that it is a sign form God that a church should be on a hill due to several occasions whilst it was being built. The church is now known as the God’s Hill church. God’s Hill is a very old-looking but beautiful town, small and can be quiet some times. Even though its supposed to be summer at that time it is still raining and i have to put on a rain coat.
One of the attraction in God’s Hill is The Model Village. It is a model for the town of God’s Hill. The entrance fees i guess at that time was around 3-4 pounds. Everything is beautiful and clean.
It is a nice place and they clearly laid out the model of the village. Even though it was raining i still able to enjoy the view and it is magnificent! They have this shelters to help you dodge the rain. I felt like i am a giant in there. Everything is small and they used small model characters to play out some funny scenes and it is really interesting to just walk around. If you happen to be there next time please look out for the striker on the football pitch. It is like you can see the whole God’s Hill from sky or in other words as if you are looking through a giant’s eyes LOL.
Oh not forget the gardens are gorgeous in spite the dreadful weather.
Anyway let me walk you through the village ya! I bet the kids gonna enjoy this place the most hence a very good spot for family. They have a village within a village within a village! Interesting isn’t it?
The first thing i saw as i entered is this airport miniature. I was like everything looks real but in a smaller size! Told you as if i am looking through a giant’s eyes!
Even the Griffin hotel is smaller in size! LOL.. I am a giant ! Look at that!
Remember that i told you guys earlier it is a village in a village in a village? The following photo gonna show you what i meant earlier. I am standing at a spot looking out at the miniature of The model Village. I magine there is a village in a village in a village? Get what i mean? Confusing right?
Another thing that is interesting in ‘The Model Village’ is that almost all of the model character had their own personality and quirks and as you walk through the model village you could not stop smiling just by looking at them!
As i said everything seems real except for their size, the train even keep on running on the track as if it is really in open for service! LOL.. i was standing there and looking at the train running on the rail track and stopped at the train station. Weird but i was amazed by it. I think i have the heart of a 5 year old LOL.
They also have a field full of small model character playing crickets on the field. If you really look at each characters they have a quirk on their face as if they are alive! Its like watching a paused movie. Every joy is capture onto their faces. Amazing!
Enjoy the last few photos ….
So at the end of the journey in the model village, we arrived at the souvenir’s shop. They have lots of interesting place. Dont forget to buy one on the way out! Make is as a token of remembrance of the place :)
