Details

Step into the world of Miss Potter and experience all 23 of her magical tales, brought to life using sights, sounds and even smells.
Following a major refurbishment, the World of Beatrix Potter has even more to see and do! In an indoor re-creation of the Lakeland countryside, you will be able to:
Call on Mrs Tiggy-winkle in her kitchen and identify the animal clothes hanging on the washing line.
Wander into the woodland glade to meet Jemima Puddle-duck and the scary foxy whiskered gentleman.
Creep with Peter Rabbit through the garden and peep inside Mr McGregor's greenhouse.
There is also the chance to find out more about the fascinating life of Beatrix Potter with the Tale of Mrs Heelis presentation and take a walk in her footsteps with the Beatrix Potter virtual walks.
The World of Beatrix Potter is the only attraction licensed by the publisher of the Peter Rabbit books and includes a Beatrix Potter emporium and Tailor of Gloucester tea room.

New for 2008 – Celebrate with Jemima Puddle-Duck

New displays in the attraction celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication of The Tale of Jemima Puddle-duck. Wander through the woods and meet the sinister “foxy whiskered gentleman” and marvel as Jemima swoops over a clearing of foxgloves.

Centenary events include puppet shows, Easter egg hunts and from 1st July a very special competition to win a Golden Egg worth £10,000 and help raise cash for Water Aid.
