Peter Pan Statue in Kensington Gardens

The Peter Pan Statue

Sir James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937) was a Scottish novelist and playwright.


He was the creator of the timeless play and then novel, Peter Pan.


Upon his death, J.M. Barrie gave his copyrights of Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital – a children's hospital in London.


Some of his other notable works were The Little White Bird and The Admirable Crichton.


This is a bronze statue of J. M. Barrie's fictional character, Peter Pan, made by Sir George Frampton.


The statue is positioned in Kensington Gardens to the west of The Long Water (a lake).


Sir James Matthew chose this location for the statue because it is where Peter lands his boat in one of the books.


It is also a talking statue: you can scan the QR code and listen to its story.
