Lovely place to relive your childhood memories of Peter and Co. It was a bit shorter than expected and the gift shop is over priced, of course, but it was worth the money.

I thought it was quite reasonably priced to enter, the exhibits were beautifully maintained and the museum itself was really interesting and really told the story of Beatrix Potters life. Well...

We spent a couple of hours in here quite easily, and probably could have been longer if the kids didn't want to fly through the whole place as they were so excited! Great interactive games for the kids to do (pen and paper, and also touchscreen). Worth a visit.

Visited yesterday 7th March with my grandchildren and it was quite magical. My granddaughter aged 2 was a little overawed at first but she soon relaxed and loved every minute of it. We enjoyed relaxing in the spotless tearoom afterwards with great homemade cakes. It was a good time to go, as early in the season we had it more... More

Great little attraction to walk round! The displays are great!! Our little boy loved it! The short video at the start was very informative. I loved going outside and seeing the gardens, the section with Peter rabbits coat hung up is very cute. Not to expensive either , two adults £15 well worth the money! We pushed our son round...

A great attraction for the children. We also found it very interesting. The tour does not take too long. An added bonus, there is a coffee shop on site which served a selection of drinks and snacks. There is also a lovely gift shop, which was very tempting.
