Peter Rabbit Storytime Trail

16, The Forum, Wallsend, NE28 8JR


A story time trail about one of the world’s favourite children’s books has arrived in North Tyneside.

The World of Peter Rabbit™ Storytime Trail premieres at Wallsend Library on Saturday 13 January.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter was first published by Frederick Warne & Co, now part of Penguin Random House UK, back in 1902. 

The World of Peter Rabbit™ has just celebrated 120 years of mischief throughout the year and this interactive exhibition will be a walkthrough experience where little bunnies will be able to crawl under the garden gate, hide in a watering can and see their reflection in a mirror pool, just like Peter! 

With photo opportunities and activities to take part in along the way, it’s a great chance for families to celebrate his birthday.

Beatrix Potter’s stories started life as picture letters written to the children of her family and friends. Often the characters in them were real animals she kept as pets including rabbits called Peter Piper and Benjamin Bouncer and a hedgehog names Mrs Tiggy-Winkle.

Wallsend Library is open between 9am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday and between 9am and 1pm on Saturdays.
