Art Gallery
$$
“Beatrix Potter gallery locates in the middle of the small village in Hawkshead. It's 2 miles away from Hill Top Beatrix Potter House in Near Sawrey. This is the only place you can always see Beatrix Potter's original artwork, and it seems like it has both permanent exhibition and special exhibition. ピーター・ラビットで有名なビアトリクス・ポターの原画を唯一常設展示しているギャラリーです。彼女が住んでいた家ヒルトップHill Topが家そのものとそこから見える景色、庭や農村の風景を楽しむ場所であるのに対し、ビアトリクス・ポター・ギャラリーは小さいながら村の中心部にあり、純粋に彼女の芸術作品を鑑賞するための場になっています(この家は彼女の夫がオフィスとして所有していたものだそうです)。 ”

School
“Really interesting little museum. See where Wordsworth went to school. The tour gives a fascinating insight into what school life would have been like hundreds of years ago. Good for kids too. ”
