  • This small bronze statue is found in Kensington Gardens, London. The exact location is west of the Long Water, in the same spot as Peter lands his bird-nest boat in the story, ‘The Little White Bird.’ where Peter Pan was firstly presented to the public as a fictiional character.
    A couple of years after his debut , JM Berrie, author of Peter Pan, decided to write a book on the boy who’d never grow up, a boy living in Neverland – Peter Pan!
    The little hero became so popular amongst adults and children alike that the Kensington Borough decided to build a staue in his honour.
    The piece was designed by Sir George Frampton. Peter stands at the top of the structure, surrounded by squirrels, rabbits, mice, and fairies below.

    The City of London has included Peter Pan’s statue into its’ Talking Statues application for Smartphones. All a visitor has to do is swipe their phone on the nearby plaque and get a personal call-back from Peter Pan.
