Beatrix Potter’s London Display at Victoria & Albert Museum

Marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of Beatrix Potter (1866-1943), the Victoria & Albert Museum will showcase a display which explores the role of London in Potter’s life and work. Born in Kensington, London, she regularly visited her local galleries and museums, including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum, to foster her study of art and natural history. London was also home to almost all of Potter’s publishing ventures, including her most famous book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit. The Beatrix Potter’s London display at the Victoria & Albert Museum which can be toured with a qualified and knowledgeable Blue Badge Tourist Guide is on until 28 April 2017 in gallery 102.
