The World of Beatrix Potter

Meet Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-duck, Tom Kitten and many other delightful characters in the magical World of Beatrix Potter.

The attraction includes all 23 Tales by Beatrix Potter, brought to life in an indoor recreation of the Lakeland countryside, complete with sights, sounds and even smells. So you can meet Peter Rabbit in Mr. McGregor’s garden, discover Jemima Puddle-duck in the woodland glade and visit Mrs. Tiggy-winkle in her kitchen.

The Miss Potter Room explores the life of Beatrix Potter with a unique Virtual Walks display, short film presentation and innovative exhibits about Beatrix Potter and her pioneering life.

You can also browse through the Beatrix Potter Emporium with its comprehensive range of Peter Rabbit gifts.

Perhaps you might also enjoy lunch or afternoon tea in the unique Tailor of Gloucester Tea Room or outdoors on the garden terrace, where you can enjoy The Enchanting World of Beatrix Potter sculpture, unveiled in the presence of Renée Zellweger.
