A Railway Modellers Ideal Christmas Present

Finding the right Christmas gift for a model railway enthusiast can be a real problem, especially if you don’t share their interest or don’t know what they have or want. Have you ever considered buying them an experience that will last them for ever? 

Buy the Railway Modeller in your life the Christmas present they will thank you for for years to come; a weekend of pure indulgence in the hobby they love.

Our weekends are aimed at existing Railway Modellers who want to either improve on the skills they already have or to branch out in a new direction of the hobby by adding that new skill they always wished they had.


  • Two weekends a year, Spring and Autumn with a number of courses at each weekend to choose from
  • Tuition from well known and respected figures in the hobby
  • Weekends run from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon
  • Full board staying at Missenden Abbey or without accommodation but including lunches and dinners
  • Course choices do not need to be made at the time of booking

Booking for our next event, in March 2022 will be available online from the 16th of November. If you are not sure it is right for the modeller in your life then please use the contacts page on this website, we will be happy to advise. One of our primary aim is that those that come to our weekends enjoy themselves and learn something new. Missenden courses are not run for profit, they are run by volunteer modellers to promote the hobby and encourage modellers to expand their skills.
