This was the worst children's attraction I have ever had the misfortune to go to with my two young children. In fact I wouldn't describe it as an attraction. It cost £21 for a family of four. We had to wait five minutes to get in and were around it in twenty minutes. I thought we had missed something and... More

We are very sorry to hear that the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction was not for you and your family. Such a shame as the majority of visitors enjoy taking a fascinating step back in time to a bygone era - the world of Beatrix Potter and the early 1900s. Visitors say they feel they are walking through the pages... More

Visited on Easter Sunday with our under 5 year old. Queue for tickets was backing out into the street and took 30 minutes to get in. Luckily under 5 year old and partner amused themselves in the gift shop while I waited in line. It was only when I got near to the front did I see the problem. Visitors... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Attraction and good to hear that your daughter enjoyed the exhibits. I hope she also enjoyed our fabulous free Peter Rabbit trail, that with a bit of help, little ones love completing as there is so much to find and spot which you might have ordinarily missed.

Lovely little museum/visitor attraction experience except for the huge queue to get in and that the two till points weren't being fully utilised which made the queue move very slowly.

Thanks for your feedback and great to hear you enjoyed it. The exhibition admits 25 people every 6 minutes to ensure that once inside everyone gets a great experience with the time and space needed to explore the exhibits. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Best wishes WOBPA More

When we got there the queue was fairly long. The attraction is ok but not much to do for younger children. We managed to walk through in an hour. Good bit of history on Beatrix potter. Could be a nice break if it's raining outside

Thank you for your review. We have experience a rather wet Easter this year which does make our queues a bit longer than we'd like. Hope your children enjoyed the free Peter Rabbit activity trail, and great to hear you enjoyed finding out more about the history of Beatrix. Best wishes WOBPA More

There was a bit of a line up for the tickets but was a great place to visit. Once we got the tickets and through the film t didn't feel crowded at all looking at the displays.
