Our story

Established in 1990, The Victorian Model Workshop is one of only a handful in the country which opens its doors to the public.

If you’re interested in how we make our models we have just published a little book how we do it! With sections on cams, levers and pulleys, drive systems and motors and much more! It has detailed drawings, exploded diagrams and photographs showing how mechanisms work and how we use them in our models. Compatible with the National Curriculum and STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics) Available now £8.50 including P&P.

For a truly unique talking point we design and build one-off mechanical figures, automatons and animated displays for private collectors and commercial customers. We’re open Tuesday to Sunday, and you can find us here.
