We took our 3 small Grandsons here for the first time on Saturday, They had a fabulous time, the displays are fantastic and very good value for money. It is a must see for anyone with small children

“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Totally unexpected! My wife enjoyed Beatrix Potter's books growing up, so I ended up accompanying them (with friends) just for the fun of it ... was I blown away by everything from the short video when you first enter the exhibit to the tiny "cutie" creatures ... WOW! Thank God we were there a little earlier around 9:30(?) so the pace was more leisurely, and of course taking pictures in every exhibits! By around 10:30, the place was packed! My advise: Go early ... take your time ... don't rush!

“Awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Arrived and lengthy queue snaked down stairs which was dangerous. Despite lots of staff milling around only one person working tickets (despite two people sitting at desks). Long queue was highlight - rest is just woeful profiteering.

“So cute!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

I'm quite biased as I LOVE Beatrix Potter and always have done but this place really is lovely. It's about £6 to get in which probably is a bit steep but the models and the garden are brilliant. Great gift shop too.
