The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction is great day out for all the family. All 23 of Beatrix Potter’s tales are brought to life inside the Attraction, recreating the beautiful Lake District countryside, complete with sights, sounds and even smells.

A visit to the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, takes you on a journey through the life and work of Beatrix Potter. The Attraction is in six parts and it takes around 45 minutes to one hour to explore them all

Outdoors you can explore our Peter Rabbit Garden, while you hunt for hidden words and animal homes with our Free family activity sheet. You can relax and unwind in our family-friendly Beatrix Potter Tea Room, serving tempting treats, made with fresh local produce and crops grown in our own Kitchen Garden. And afterwards you can explore our Beatrix Potter Shop, where you can find a wide range of gifts inspired by Peter Rabbit and his friends.

A Freedom Pass allows up to two adults and two children to visit the Attraction as many times as they like within a year, and includes newsletters, special offers, discounts in the shop and tearoom and special membership activities. Price £30.00 - ask at reception for a form.

The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction is situated in the centre of the hilly town of Bowness-on-Windermere which makes getting around for those with mobility issues tricky. We strongly recommend those with mobility issues park in the courtyard of the attraction. This means you can avoid paying for parking and the steep slopes leading to the attraction. Please call 0844 504 1233 to book a parking space in the courtyard. All sections of the attraction are on one level of the building with ample door width for wheelchairs. A new lift gives access to the toilets (including a mobility toilet) and Tailor of Gloucester Tea Room.

At the heart of the World of Beatrix Potter are three-dimensional recreations of all 23 of Beatrix Potter's Tales. This makes the attraction a very tactile experience for blind and partially sighted visitors. You are very welcome to explore the attraction by yourselves but a member of staff is available to offer a touch tour of the World of Beatrix Potter. Please call 0844 504 1233 to request a tour.

Sound induction loops are in operation in the reception area and Beatrix Potter Shop.
