Interesting place which is very well put together, however the place was so overcrowded that it concerned me greatly. While I appreciate the summer months are always going to be busy this was a squashed and frantic place to be which detracted from the experience....More

Very good, it was a pleasant walk around very interesting. It looks like a lot of care was taken in the making of all the models. Very nostalgic.

The jumbo Peter Rabbit toy measures a whopping 90 cm! He’s big and cuddly and is made from soft plush. We think he will fit perfectly into a nursery and is a great toy for all Peter Rabbit fans.
