Children and families will be able to delight in the world of Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit this summer when a new immersive experience comes to North Herts Museum.

The Storytime Trail will give people the opportunity to walk through the world inhabited by Peter, Flopsy, Jemima Puddleduck, and more.

Little ones will be able to crawl under the garden gate, hide in a watering can and see their reflection in a mirror pool, just like Peter Rabbit, with photo opportunities and activities to take part in along the way.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter was first published in 1902, following a mischievous and disobedient young rabbit as he gets into, and is chased around, the garden of Mr McGregor.

To celebrate the 120th anniversary of the classic book, Frederick Warne & Co - the original publishers - put together The World of Peter Rabbit™ Storytime Trail.
