School Visits

Beatrix Potter, her life and her stories can provide a great learning opportunity for children of all ages.

Here at the World of Beatrix Potter™ Attraction we love welcoming school groups from nursery upwards.  We will be happy to help you tailor your visit to ensure that your group get the most from the experience.  Beatrix Potter and her stories can be linked to many areas of the National Curriculum including Literacy, History, Geography, Art and Science.  Topic work based around this amazing lady can provide a wealth of learning opportunities for pupils of all ages.   So whether you are focussing on Literacy, Art, History or Science, we have developed a host of useful resources to make learning effective and fun.

All the information you might need to help you plan a visit can be found in our Learning Resource Pack.  Alternatively please contact groups@hop-skip-jump.com for more information.

Extras your School group might enjoy…

Appearances by Peter Rabbit and Beatrix Potter
School groups can book an appearance by our Peter Rabbit character costume or our knowledgeable actress who plays Beatrix Potter.  Miss Potter talks to the children as if she is Beatrix Potter in the year 1920 about her life, career as a writer, farmer and conservationist.  Dressed in costume recreated from original photographs by costumiers from the Royal Exchange Theatre, she can tailor her performance to suit your occasion. Time travel with her in the exhibition or during a private appearance in the Tea Garden and make your time together truly memorable. If you want that special touch that will make your gathering go with a Victorian swing – Miss Potter entertains!  To find out more click here.

Combined Lake District Tours are great value!
