  • What a beautiful place! So adorable! You are free to wander around the various rooms admiring the exhibition's. There is a trail with questions that children can complete if you want. Information is given about Beatrix Potter throughout the attraction. A must visit!
  • This is a good place to visit, regardless of the weather as one part of the attraction is the outside garden. It's a good idea to get there early as the experience begins with a short film about Peter Rabbit, the viewing room is small so a queue can build up.The whole experience is very well planned for lots of things for little people - and not so little- to see. My grand children loved the tiny window displays, especially the ones with the mice. Possibly more of interest to the grown ups, although there are some lovely features that the children loved such as the watering can water feature, is the gold award Chelsea Flower Show garden featuring a sculpture covered with Beatrix Potter's creations. There is a cafe and buggy storage area. There is a large public car park opposite the attraction. Family tickets are available. Children under 3 are free. This attraction is well worth a visit. £25 for 3 kids 13,11,9 and 2 adults. Its well presented and has loads of small things to look out for. We all thoroughly enjoyed looking for our favourite characters, a bit of a wait but it was pouring outside so didnt mind. Even managed to go around the garden.
