Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit hops, skips and jumps off the page in this interactive exhibition about Beatrix Potter's most famous character.

The exhibition tells the story of the creation of Peter Rabbit, whose popularity transcends generations and includes original, rarely exhibited artworks and manuscripts.  It also reveals a fresh insight into the innovative way Beatrix Potter developed Peter Rabbit as a character and loveable brand.  Younger visitors will love the activity play room and can help Mrs Tiggy-Winkle hang up the laundry, plant carrots in Mr. McGregor's garden, visit Mrs. Rabbit in her burrow or curl up with one of the books in the story corner.

We have a wealth of activities throughout the exhibition for children and adults.
