Hobby Holidays Model Railway Workshops

At Hobby Holidays we offer a relaxing environment in which to learn new skills and develop your existing talents. We employ expert tutors with oodles of patience to help you progress without stress.

We started Hobby Holidays in 2003 to offer workshops primarily in our own hobbies. Since then we have expanded the range of workshops and now sell the products that the experts use, including Plastikard, Evergreen Strips, Brass tube and sections, Humbrol paints, plus our own Master Chassis jig and Hornblocks. We do sell some very unusual items that you won't find in any model shop

We are increasing our range all the time

We also offer high quality accommodation on-site in our 4 comfortable rooms.
