Peter Rabbit Garden Adventure at Blenheim

This summer, Blenheim Palace will play host to a world first – an immersive Peter Rabbit experience around the grounds, running from July 6 to September 3.

Yes, one of the nation’s oldest and best loved characters is taking families on this immersive adventure for the first time amidst Blenheim’s Walled Gardens, to help celebrate his 120th birthday!

So what can you expect? A young Beatrix Potter invites you to join her on an adventure to find her mischievous friend Peter Rabbit, as she leads guests through never-before-seen spots in the Palace’s walled garden.

Moving from flower and vegetable gardens to greenhouses and potting sheds, you’ll get a glimpse of the estate no-one else has seen, whilst meeting friends Jemima Puddle-Duck, Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and Mr. Jeremy Fisher along the way.


‘The Peter Rabbit Garden Adventure – a live immersive experience also involves a magical mix of storytelling, live performance, and puppetry.
