22: Look for Peter Pan’s statue in Kensington Gardens


Peter Pan's Statue in Kensington Gardens 1

Along the bank of the Long Water (the upper part of the Serpentine)), in the North East corner of Kensington Gardens, stands George Framton’s statue of Peter Pan, with Tinkerbell climbing its base.

Peter Pan’s author, J. M. Barrie, specifically chose this location as it figures in the first novel where Peter Pan appears, 1902’s Little White Bird. Though admittedly twee, it is one of the most popular statues of Kensington Gardens and definitely worth checking out if you’re in the park.

  1. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s
    a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Outstanding work!
