We welcome you to the official website of Beatrix Potter’s The Tailor of Gloucester museum and shop.
The House of the Tailor of Gloucester (pictured here) is today a charming museum and quaint shop. The building is easy to find. It is in College Court which stands within the shadow of the Cathedral. This was the area Beatrix Potter drew and which inspired her to write what she described as her ‘favourite book’.
The House of the Tailor is now staffed by volunteers who are both enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Beatrix Potter and her works. The museum and shop are open to the public daily from Monday – Saturday 10am to 4.30pm and Sunday noon until 4pm (Closed Bank Holidays, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Open Sunday from Easter until Christmas.).
