Loved our visit the theatre show was brilliant and made our visit, the exhibition itself was good but quite small, glad we saw show as well as exhibition. Lovely souvenirs in the shop as well.

If you love Beatrix Potter this is for you. It’s a lovely setting near lake windamere. The parking is over the road and it’s pay and display. The entrance from the car park is not wheelchair/buggy friendly with lots of stairs. You need to walk...More

Visited with our 2 and a half year old whilst on holiday in the area. She is peter rabbit crazy so thought this would be a great place to visit. The place is ok, but for the price I wouldn’t say much more than that....More

Visited with our grandson (2 yr old). He loved it! A lot of the animals (models) were the same size as him, we loved looking at the detail in each scene. The Peter Rabbit themed garden was a treat, too. We went early and it...More

Great little exhibition. Was a little sceptical about how much the kids would like this, but was very well done and rarely for this type of thing, not at a rip off price. Definitely worth a visit, especially when avoiding the rain!

We were lucky to arrive on a day when it was free entry to the exhibition, in celebration of 70 years of the NHS, but even if we had to pay, tickets are not expensive and well worth the experience. The exhibition features beautifully crafted...More

Magical...capturing the essence of Beatrix Potter. Pleasant attraction with good, well stocked gift shop too. Great customer service - although some staff were a bit too desperate to please. This wasn't necessary as you were good!!

Absolutely! We are in the beautiful Lake District in the small village of Bowness so a walk can start straight from our door!
