We loved this attraction! Very sweet, beautifully put together, and very nostalgic! The cafe was also great - we had a really yummy high tea for two. All the staff were wonderful. I would definitely recommend visiting if you can.

We have now been twice and both times our children have really enjoyed it. The tearoom is also lovely. Only downside is parking is over a busy road

It’s a very pretty exhibit, with decorative scenes from the books. A bit old for my son who had trouble toddling up and down the “hills” indoors as he isn’t steady on his feet and for whom the iPads were not really toddler friendly (he...More
