Great for all lovers of Beatrix Potter. Very cute, only takes about an hour. Excellent shop, also can buy online which is great when you're travelling.

Beautiful experience. You wander through the exhibits and feel as if you have stepped into the books. The short introductionary film is informative and interesting.
