Expert review of Beatrix Potter Gallery

The fruits of the National Trust's Beatrix Potter archive.

This tiny, low-ceilinged cottage from the 17th century is home to a fine collection of Potter's watercolours and sketchbooks, featuring early sketches of her best-loved characters.

The downstairs exhibition id dedicated to Potter's husband, William Heelis, who worked as a solicitor in Hawkshead during the mid 19th century.
 

Price advice: 

General admission is £4.60; children £2.30.

Expert tips: 
Discounted entrance if you already have a valid ticket for Hill Top.
Very low ceilings – mind your head.
