“Poor value for money”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

The café prices at this venue are huge not a place to stop for a bite to eat with children it will cost you a fortune!
The venue itself is uninspired and uninteresting our children walked through without comment. This could be such a special place with a little more effort and imagination!

“Ok but overpriced.”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Visited this week with our 3 children, of whom the eldest two couldn't wait to meet Peter rabbit.
We spent almost as long queuing to get inside than we did exploring the museum.
Inside it was very small, and difficult to see the various displays due to the number of visitors.
The garden was tiny and again we felt uncomfortable by the jostling and lack of space.
The displays were undoubtably cute and the children loved what they saw, however for the price charged we felt a little hard done by.
Sadly this place didn't live up to our expectations.

“Worth visiting”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Went on bank holiday weekend with 2 year old nephew. We both loved it! Lots to see, must have been in there over an hour. The rooms are decorated amazingly, they have done a brilliant job of creating childhood memories! Could maybe be more interactive but the puzzle room was a really good idea. Some gorgeous gifts in the gift shop on the way out, over priced but all Peter Rabbit merchandise is we were expecting it! Well worth a visit very cute day out.

“Fantastic Time”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Visited yesterday (Bank Holiday) and the attraction was very busy. The kids had a fantastic time and loved meeting Peter Rabbit as he came out several times to meet and greet. I would go back again and again. The cafe is a little over priced, but so is everywhere during the holidays in the Lake District.
