It’s been a tough year for everyone, but there’s plenty for families to enjoy this Christmas – with the National Trust and Peter Rabbit™. Read on to find out more about the activities you can explore – from your own home, and in Polesden Lacey’s beautiful gardens.
Peter Rabbit™ winter adventure activity trail (for ages 3-5 and 5-9 yrs), £2 per trail plus normal admission.
From December 5 we’re treating you and your little ones to the magic of an exclusive National Trust Peter Rabbit™ winter adventure activity trail, in partnership with Penguin Random House UK.
Set in the gardens at Polesden Lacey in Great Bookham, kids can pick up a trail pack (£2) and help Peter Rabbit’s friends prepare for the winter months. Young nature adventurers will find themselves lending a hand to some of Beatrix Potter’s best-loved characters, including Squirrel Nutkin and Jemima Puddle-Duck. There are clues to solve, nature-themed challenges to try, and a Peter Rabbit selfie station where everyone can take a picture with their favourite storybook rabbit.
Each trail pack includes an activity sheet, pencil, badge, certificate, and additional play pack to take home. There are tasks to suit both 3 -5 year olds and 5 – 9 year olds.
Booking your visit
The trail will be available from December 5th to January 3rd. To avoid disappointment, please book your visit in advance. Booking is essential on weekends, during school holidays and on bank holidays. Every Friday we release new tickets for the following week.
