Welcome to:-

The Miniature Scene of York

Situated at

18 Monkgate, York, YO31 7PF

Located just outside the City walls next to the Best Western - Monkbar Hotel and adjacent to Monkbar, one of the four ancient gateways to the City, within easy walking distance of the City centre.

As well as stocking items from the major suppliers to the dolls house hobby, we have an ever increasing range of hand crafted, bespoke products not available anywhere else that are produced by ourselves and by the many talented miniature artists both local to York and from further a field.

For those who enjoy the challenge of creating their own miniatures we have a good selection of associated modelling and craft materials that can be used for not only the dolls house hobby, but also may prove useful for model railways, model boat builders, model engineers and all things miniature.

Why not pop in for a chat. We love to share our knowledge and equally love to listen as customers relate their own experiences on this fascinating and absorbing hobby.
