With the release of the new film, Peter Rabbit is having a moment. The latest childhood classic to get the blockbuster treatment, the all-star cast includes Domhnall Gleeson as Mr McGregor and James Corden the voice of newly animated Peter Rabbit.
But anyone faithful to the traditional nineteenth-century Beatrix Potter illustrations will love the sweet new trail at Kew Gardens. Spot life-size cut outs of the familiar watercolour characters including Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail set against the spring landscape of Kew.
All visitors receive a copy of Mr McGregor’s Garden Notebook on arrival, and can then follow the bunny adventure trail to the Festival Hub for exciting games, craft activities and workshops. Build a rabbit warren fit for a whole family, play giant food card games and make your very own fuzzy bunny ears. (NB activities run 10.30am – 3.30pm daily).
Visitors can also pop into Kew’s Kitchen Garden to admire the amazing display of colourful fruit and veg including seasonal asparagus, broad beans, lettuce, garlic and rhubarb. The Kitchen Garden team will be giving mini tours for families to show off the luscious produce growing in the garden in springtime.
Kitchen Garden talks will run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (excluding Bank Holidays), 11.30am and 1.30pm.
