World of Beatrix Potter information
This themed attraction brings to life various scenes from Beatrix Potter's books, including Peter Rabbit's garden, Mr McGregor's greenhouse, Mrs Tiggywinkle's kitchen and Jemima Puddle-Duck's glade (there's even a themed tea room). A recent addition is the Where is Peter Rabbit? theatre show, which features puppets and characters from the stories. It's squarely aimed at kids, but adult Potter fans might enjoy indulging their inner child.
Be prepared for queues (and lots of Japanese tourists) during holiday times.
