Brings the books to life. My four grandchildren loved it and enjoyed doing the activity sheet too. The garden is good too. My only criticism is that it's quite crowded. Maybe timed entries limiting the number of people would be a good idea.

Visited here recently whilst having a break in The Lakes. This place is magical and the attention to detail is incredible. I'm a massive (adult) Beatrix Potter fan and enjoyed the whole experience. It would be truly amazing for children, so much for them to...More

We took our married daughters and two grandchildren, a 9 year old girl and a 7 year old boy and I would be hard pushed to say which generation enjoyed it most. It starts with a short film introducing Beatrix Potter and her most famous...More
