The information can help you visit places that influenced the development of the characters and see where some of your favourite films and television series were made.
In the Footsteps of Beatrix Potter tells the story of the most successful classic children’s author of all time. It outlines the most popular stories, and tells of her determination to have a career and marry the man she wanted, rather than fall into line with her parents ideas.

It shows how the Peter Rabbit stories have been portrayed in literature, film, television and drama; as are portrayals of her own personal story. You can visit many of the film locations including Lincoln’s Inn,The Rum Story, Yew Tree Farm, Osterley Park, and Loweswater.
