Review : The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction

Back at the end of last year we went on a cottage holiday in the Lake District, while we were there we decided to take a boat over to Bowness-on-Windermere and visit The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, Aria was a little too young to appreciate it to it’s full extent but us adults were fascinated by it.

The World of Beatrix Potter attraction is situated in Bowness-on-Windermere, a popular tourist destination in the Lake District. Admission prices vary dependant on age, we paid £7.20 per adult and Aria was free of charge as she is under two years old.

When you first enter you can watch a short presentation which introduces you to Beatrix Potter, her stories and illustrations. Once you’ve watched the film the doors open to take you into the main exhibition which is where you will see the famous Beatrix Potter stories bought to life with fascinating life like figures and in vivid colour and detail.

The exhibition is split up into eight areas, the first being the welcome video, followed by Jemima Puddle-duck’s woodland glade and Mr Tod’s underground home, The Peter Rabbit Garden, Mrs Tiggy-winkle’s Kitchen, Jeremy Fisher on his lily-pad boat, the virtual walk, Mr McGregor’s Greenhouse and The Tale of Peter Rabbit and finishing with The Beatrix Potter shop.

The displays are fascinating and so pretty, the attention to detail is crazy!

As well as the inside displays there is also a beautiful garden area, my personal favourite of all the exhibitions, featuring the cos lettuces that Benjamin Bunny nibbled on to the gooseberry bush where Peter got caught in a net as he tried to escape Mr. McGregor.

The garden is full of beautiful flowers and features, along with impressive sculptures and plants.

If all of this isn’t enough, there is also a tea rooms where you can finish your tour perfectly with a delicious cuppa and cake. I opted for a chocolate orange cake and it did not disappoint!

I highly recommend a trip the The World of Beatrix Potter, there is something there for everyone. Aria loved the bright colours and displays, we loved reminiscing over favourite childhood characters and were blown away by the exhibitions.

      It really was fab, I'm glad that we went along while we were in the area as it is so far away we aren't likely to have the chance again.
