Beatrix Potter Gallery

For over a hundred years, characters like Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and Peter Rabbit have made an indelible impression on children in Britain and beyond. Their creator, author Beatrix Potter, is intimately connected with the Lake District and this charming, compact gallery celebrates that bond with a display of original drawings showing the genesis of her books, which she wrote and illustrated herself.

The Beatrix Potter Gallery is housed in a 17th century building which was once the office of Potter’s solicitor husband, William Heelis, and is situated in the town of Hawkshead. Exhibits also tell the life story of Potter herself and her commitment to conserving the natural beauty of the Lake District.

Practical Info

The village of Hawkshead is a picturesque 20-minute drive away from the town of Windermere. Once there, allow time to walk around this quaint market village, where the winding streets are closed to traffic. Apart from the Beatrix Potter Gallery, highlights include the Quaker Meeting House, known as the “Birthplace of Quakerism”, and the Old Grammar School once attended by poet William Wordsworth.
