Peter Rabbit™ winter adventure activity trail at Dunham Massey 

Unfortunately, we've had to postpone Peter Rabbit™ winter adventure activity trail at Dunham Massey until later this winter. But there's still lots of things you can do to help Peter's friends at home. To prepare for your adventure, get stuck into these Peter Rabbit activity packs - we'll be adding more throughout the season. At home you can still get creative, help out a wild animal and learn more about the natural world around you with the help of your favourite Beatrix Potter characters.

Eating and shopping

Grab a bite to eat

From Thursday 5 November, for the duration of the four-week lockdown we will only offer takeaway food and hot and cold drinks. This is in line with the latest government guidance and applies only to cafés and food outlets in England. We have introduced new safety measures including screens at our till and collection points and waymarked routes. We’ll also only be accepting card payment.

We need your support 

For 125 years, people like you have helped us protect some of the UK's best-loved places. Everyone needs nature, beauty and green spaces now more than ever. But our income has dropped sharply due to the coronavirus crisis, and our essential conservation work is at risk. Please give what you can to help us look after these places, so people and nature can thrive.

Experience more with National Trust membership 

As we gradually and safely open more of the places we care for, there’ll be more opportunities to explore gardens and parklands near you. If you’re a member, you can access all these places free, together with most National Trust car parks. It’s so important for everyone to have fresh air, birdsong, big skies and open spaces to enjoy. Your membership will go towards looking after all of this for generations to come.
