Meeting Miss Potter & Peter Rabbit
For an additional fee, School groups can book an appearance from our Peter Rabbit character or meet our knowledgeable actress who plays Beatrix Potter. Miss Potter talks to the children as if she is Beatrix Potter – about her life and her career as a writer, farmer and conservationist.
Dressed in costume recreated from original photographs, she can tailor her performance to suit your visit. You can time travel with her in the Attraction or perhaps enjoy storytime in the Garden making it a truly memorable visit.
Free Garden Tour
Take a walk through Mr McGregor’s potting shed with our Gardener and discover the gardens that Beatrix wrote about and illustrated in her Tales. See where Benjamin Bunny nibbled on the gooseberry bush and where Peter got caught in a net as he tried to escape Mr McGregor. You’ll find out that Peter is in fact more partial to radishes than carrots!
