Our Vision

To celebrate the life of Beatrix Potter

The Beatrix Potter Society has been registered as a charity in the UK since 1980. We exist to promote the study and appreciation of the life and works of Beatrix Potter (1866 – 1943). She was not only the author of The Tale of Peter Rabbit and other classics of children’s literature but also a landscape and natural history artist, diarist, farmer and preservationist. Beatrix Potter was responsible for preserving large areas of the Lake District through her gifts to the National Trust.

The Beatrix Potter Society upholds and protects the integrity of the inimitable and unique work of Beatrix Potter, her aims and bequests and brings together those who share these interests worldwide.
