Winter adventures with Peter Rabbit and friends

This winter, treat your little ones to the magic of a Peter Rabbit™ winter adventure activity trail around the National Trust’s beautiful Ilam Park - in partnership with Penguin Random House UK. The National Trust and Penguin Random House UK have worked together for many years to protect Beatrix Potter’s legacy in the Lake District and to bring the timeless adventures of Peter Rabbit and friends to National Trust supporters and their families.

Peter Rabbit’s friends need some help finding items to see them through the colder winter months. Young nature adventurers can lend a hand to some of Beatrix Potter’s well-loved characters such as Squirrel Nutkin, Mr. Jeremy Fisher and Jemima Puddle-Duck, and solve the clues to earn their special trail badge and certificate.

There will be nature-themed active challenges to try along the way, as well as a Peter Rabbit selfie station at the end of the trail where everyone can take a picture with their favourite storybook rabbit.
