We weren't sure whether we wanted to visit this attraction - or rather whether it was for those of us without children. However the day was miserable and there was little we could do outside so we took a chance and were glad we did. It is obviously geared for children but as adults we enjoyed it also. It takes...

This is amazingly cute! There is information on all of her books with life size scenes to match! Its a good size too. We went when it was fairly quiet and loved slowely walking through everything and reading all of the pannels. There is a really informative film on the interactive screen that plays every 10 minutes but its worth... More

I recently visited with my husband and 3.5 year old daughter who is a fan of Peter Rabbit books and the Cbeebies programme. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and found it enchanting and magical! The scenes are made beautifully and my daughter loved seeing all the characters and looking at what they were up to! The outdoor garden was... More

A friend and I visited earlier this afternoon. After eating in the tea room which was yummy, we headed to the exhibition. It has been raining today so we saw the video and the walk through but didn't venture into the garden. Maybe this visit is only appropriate for very young children but it wasn't particularly entertaining for the two... More

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 hidden animals to look for. There is also a quiz given out that you can... More

We came here with our toddler and she loved it here going round naming all of the animals! Thought the price was reasonable, did not visit the cafe so cannot comment on that. Only slight criticism is there are steep steps leading up to the entrance so not sure what people with prams or wheelchairs would do. Would recommend for... More

This is the second time I've been and the first was over a decade ago, I dont feel lik much has changed and was equally unimpressed this time. I think a lot of the displays are poor quality, some of the things are too high for kids to see and I just believe for such a Lake District treasure this... More

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