It may be worth checking out The World of Beatrix Potter's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact The World of Beatrix Potter before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.

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.
