Beatrix Potter’s London

Marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of Beatrix Potter (1866-1943), this display 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 V&A 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.
