As I work in Peter Rabbit & Friends in Keswick I just had to visit. The shop is tucked away down a alleyway near the Cathedral, but it's a real gem. It's not just a shop it's a museum as well. Very friendly staff.

Calling all Beatrix Potter fans; this shop has everything you could possibly want regarding Peter Rabbit & Friends. It has stuffed animals, plates, cards, etc. The shop is narrow, but is chock full of happiness from floor to ceiling.
