  • It was an amazing place especially for children. Some quality time with your family and some good pictures together. You get to do an activity booklet throughout the whole of the attraction. You could also take a picture at the end of the attraction and get it made into a lot of things. Trust me we had a really good time. Recommended a lot.
  • The exhibition is stunning as you would expect with the creative heritage from Beatrix Potter however the cafe is a revelation, with friendly and knowledgeable staff who take so much care with catering for different dietary requirements. They are truly more aware than any establishment I have been in. They are all a credit to the chef who came out to double check the order. I cannot recommend them highly enough. It's incredibly tasty food too. A great experience all round.
