The World of Beatrix Potter
The World of Beatrix Potter is a vibrant family attraction, bringing to life all 23 enchanting stories in a magical recreation of the beautiful Lake District countryside.
The exhibition features favourite characters from the famous books including Peter Rabbit and Mrs Tiggy-winkle, and the outdoor Peter Rabbit Garden offers visitors a timeless view of Mr. McGregors vegetable patch.
Kids can enjoy a free activity sheet whilst grownups absorb themselves in Miss Potters history in the fascinating virtual world and interactive area. With a superb character-themed family friendly cafe and a world-famous gift shop, all generations of visitors can experience a little bit of Beatrix Potter magic, whatever the weather!
The Beatrix Potter Tea Room is a fabulous family friendly cafe with fresh ingredients grown in its own Kitchen Garden. Everything is home made from fresh local ingredients including mouthwatering salads, soups and cakes - try our Beetroot and Chocolate Brownies! The Peter Rabbit Picnic Basket is ideal for children. "A genuinely impressive Tea Room, with a thoughtful and occasionally inspiring menu for kids, plus the odd treat for their exhausted parents." The Independent
Many ingredients for the Tea Room are sourced from the Kitchen Garden, so homemade soups and delicious salads are always on the menu.
The famous Beatrix Potter gift Shop and Nursery Shop offer a wide range of gifts inspired by Peter Rabbit and his friends - some unique to the Lake District
