International Women’s Day

Beatrix Potter is one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors who has captured our imagination for over 100 years with her beautifully illustrated tales. However, few people are aware of the fascinating woman that Beatrix was or the achievements she accomplished in her lifetime, during an era when ambitious women were firmly discouraged from flourishing. An artist, storyteller, botanist, environmentalist, farmer and impeccable businesswoman, Beatrix Potter was a visionary and a trailblazer. Single-mindedly determined and ambitious, she overcame professional rejection, academic humiliation, and personal heartbreak, going on to earn her fortune and a formidable reputation.

At the Attraction today we’re celebrating Beatrix Potter’s achievements with stories and Beatrix Potter appearances at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. #internationalwomensday #beatrixpotter #peterrabbit #lakedistrict
