For anyone and everyone that has been fascinated with Peter Rabbit, this is a place to see it all come alive. Beautifully created homage to the writer and the characters. Young kids are fascinated and can spend hours going around the venue!

Visited with a toddler and would have liked to have seen a few more interactive activities. Would be good for school age children as there were lots of reading screens with questions to answer on screen. The displays are amazing and lots of detail with...More

Loved seeing all the animals in Beatrix Potters stories almost come to life. Especially all the mice hiding behind the walls!

Great sculptures displaying all the favourite characters of Beatrix Potter, the movie in the beginning of the museum tour was informative then the award winning garden was a bonus. Thoroughly enjoyable, highly recommended for young & old.

If you have grown up with the stories by Beatrix Potter then this will be a little treat :) my bf had never really grown up with the stories but he still found it very enjoyable.

Hi Isabelle thanks for your enquiry. The Attraction is mostly on one level so would be suitable for your mother to visit. To access the tea room and toilets you would need to use the lift. We have two disable parking... More
