The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up

This delightful bronze statue in Kensington Gardens of JM Barrie’s Peter Pan was commissioned by the author himself who lived nearby. It was designed by the artist Sir George Frampton, and appeared overnight, as if by magic, on 1 May 1912. Peter Pan stands at the top, blowing what looks to be a flute or a pipe, while rabbits, mice, squirrels and fairies listen attentively, dance and gather around the tree stump below him. This is one of many artworks to be discovered in the parks throughout London, join me to discover this, and more, on one of my walking tours.
