The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction reviews
I loved Beatrix Potter books as a kid (still fo) so dragged the hubby along. It was really nicely done. The displays were lovely and depicted the stories really well.

Really good museum. Love the displays and story. The only thing I would say even though it is wheelchair accessible, in places it is very tight and dark. Furthermore, the attraction exit is especially tight and the slope outside the entrance is very steep just be careful.
What a magical place. At the entrance I didn't expect much but once inside I was surprised. It was full of beauty and imagination magic. The scenes are put together well and lots of information around the trail. There is a children's activity booklet that is free and worth doing. Lots of questions and quizzes to help keep the children engaged. My only improvement would be the attraction could do with being in a bigger setting as was only small and compact.
