Highly recommended for both the young and old, great place to visit and learn more about Beatrix and history behind her stories. The tea room is also worth a visit as the food is superb, especially the home made cakes and scones !

The jumbo Peter Rabbit toy measures a whopping 90 cm! He’s big and cuddly and is made from soft plush. We think he will fit perfectly into a nursery and is a great toy for all Peter Rabbit fans.
