Animals have been obstructing the traffic at this otherwise idyllic village, but its residents and tourists don’t seem to mind at all. That village is the Babbacombe Model Village and Gardens in Devon, UK, and it’s no stranger to the occasional giants taking over its spaces.
Built to illustrate English life and culture from the past six decades, the four-acre miniature world is home to 400 pieces of property—including houses, factories, shops, and entertainment venues—designed in architectural styles from medieval to Victorian. There, giant cats from visiting communities are known to pop by for a nap, swapping the usual cardboard box for a lush lawn as a hotel bed.
My Modern Met reports that, since Babbacombe is set in the outdoors, it frequently plays host to some adorable non-human travelers, like cats and ducks. This is when staff members find the opportunity to snap a picture to remember these celebrities by.
With a population of 13,000 miniature residents, the village might seem crowded at times, but it somehow manages to leave enough room for guests of all sizes.
