A Tale of Christmas at Leeds Castle
Relive the classic Beatrix Potter™ tales on the 150th anniversary of her birth at 'A Tale of Christmas' at Leeds Castle.
Families will be captivated by the beautiful displays as they wander through the Castle. Many of the exquisitely created scenes and installations are full size giving visitors a wonderful insight into the delightful world of Beatrix Potter™. Highlights include a life-size interpretation of Mr. McGregor’s Shed, charmingly re-created and complete with everything one would expect to find in a Victorian potting shed, including his muddy boots and packed shelves - not to mention evidence of Peter Rabbit and his friends’ mischief!
Beatrix Potter’s study is a realistic but magical space displaying sketch books, paint brushes, diaries, fossils and feathers that she used to craft her stories, listen to her footsteps and the warming sound of the fire crackling. Watch closely and you may even see her shadowy silhouette moving around the room – you really will believe that you have entered her world.
In each room stands a beautifully decorated Christmas tree with clues for the enchanting Beatrix Potter™ trail that takes families around the whole Castle. Children will write their Christmas wishes on themed postcards which they can post and will be delivered to the study of Beatrix Potter™ each evening.
