J.M Barrie created the much loved Peter Pan Statue Inspired by the stunning and peaceful expansions of Kensington Gardens. The 14ft bronze statue is situated by the Long Water and creates a magnificent view for big and little children alike. Peter stands above the mice, fairies squirrels that reach towards the bronze statue. The building of this magical tribute was commissioned by the Barrie himself in 1902 and later it was the task of Sir George Frampton to construct it. Barrie's Home was close to to Kensington Gardens and it was from his story book "The Little White Bird" that Peter Pan flew out from his nursery to land in the very location where now the statue rests.
