Godshill is a pretty little village, famed for its thatched cottages, tearooms, medieval church, model village and the fact that the first Isle of Wight Festival was held at nearby Ford Farm in 1968.

The model village is at 1:10 scale and depicts Godshill and Shanklin's old village.  The church, All Saints', is noted for its medieval wall painting of a Lily crucifix and has a William Morris stained glass window.
