The Beatrix Potter Gallery is a gallery run by the National Trust in a 17th-century stone-built house in Hawkshead, Cumbria, England. It is dedicated to presenting original book illustrations by children's author Beatrix Potter.

On display are original sketches and watercolours painted by Potter for her children's stories, as well as artifacts and information relating to her life and work. The exhibition on display changes annually.[1] The 17th-century building was grade II listed in 1970.[2] It was at one time the law office of Potter's husband, William Heelis.[3] Its interior remains substantially unaltered.
