  • We had a great time here. It was really magical to look around, the atmosphere was gorgeous with beautiful music playing. We also had lunch at the cafe and it was perfect.

  • Great attraction, at a decent price. Good for young children, they will get the most out of it if they are familiar with the stories and characters. Gift shop is absolutely extortionate prices, hussle the kids through it fast if you can. There is a cafe but we didn't try it, so don't know what it's like. Toilets were decent with baby change. Not pushchair friendly, but there is a parking system for them at the front. Overall would recommend for families with children up to 7 or 8.
  • Good experience for the kids. They loved spending time with all things Peter rabbit. If you are around Lake District and are looking for something to do with the kids indoors, this is a good place. We spent a good couple of hours and both our kids 10 and 5 enjoyed it. The restaurant also serves some good cakes.
