We visited this attraction early on a Sunday morning. As an avid Beatrix Potter fan I had high expectations but sadly it didn’t live up to them. On entering the attraction there was an unpleasant smell coming from the cafe area. This was not very...More

The Peter rabbit musical show was brilliant, our 2 and 5 year old boys loved it, I would definitely recommend that. The exhibition itself wasn’t really worth doing as just a massive queue then a walk around a few nice scenes but with it being...More

We found the attraction took just over an hour and had a great time. The children’s activity trail is good and gets them thinking and looking. The displays are all well kept and maintained. Would certainly recommend for all Beatrix Potter fans!
