We visited on a rainy day with our three young children who love Peter Rabbit. I was pleasantly surprised. The models and scenes of Beatrix Potter characters were beautifully made and we all enjoyed looking at them. Mr McGregor’s garden outside was smaller than expected...More

Daughter aged 6 loved it. Though it didn’t take as long as I expected and was a bit of a disappointment for me. Just expected more. Long was to travel for such a short time

Not so great if it is just adults. I thought there would be more stuff. If you have children it would be fine. Food expensive too.
