Beautiful Bronze Statue
Sep 2021
The bronze statue is enchanting! The statue base is made up of lots of beautifully crafted animals, flora & fauna on a tree stump. There is something different to look at all the way round and the statue deserves a close look. There are fairies, mice, rabbits, and all so life-like. Beautiful.

Peter Pan Fans Would Be Excited!
Nov 2019
One of the most celebrated feature in the Kensington Gardens is the Peter Pan statue. The bronze statue, built by Sir George Frampton in 1912 is located near writer Sir James Matthew Barrie’s former house near Bayswater Road. It is noted that the Peter Pan character was inspired by the gardens.

The sculpture is 14 feet high. It is that of a life size boy on top of a tree trunk. He stands with one foot forward, arms wide & one holding a pipe or a tiny musical flute which he seems to be blowing. The side of the stump is decorated by small animals like rabbits, squirrels, mice & fairies.

It certainly brought back my childhood. Peter Pan is a children’s classic loved by all around the world. It’s about a mischievous boy who flies around Neverland. I felt excited looking at the statue, the Boy who wouldn’t grow up. Priceless experience!

A delightful statue to discover
Aug 2020
As you walk along the west side of the Serpentine or Long Water from the Italian Garden, you suddenly discover the statue of Peter Pan among the trees.

J M Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, was not the first to use Kensington Gardens in his writing or to link it with fairies. The poet Thomas Ticknell had done this in 1722.

His book 'Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens' is celebrated in the statue by the sculptor George Frampton with many characters from the book bursting out of its base - which children love to discover. The statue was commissioned by Barrie himself and was unveiled in 1912, a short walk from Barrie's own home in Bayswater Gardens.

Beautifully Intristic

The detail of the sculpture is truly exquisite. This was something I had heard about and so set out purposefully to see. I was not disappointed.

The statue is magical and reminds me of the enchanted nature behind the story, itself.

Definitely worth seeing.

Nice photo opportunity
Jan 2020 • Couples
A lovely walk around Kensington Park to get to this statue. Not a lot to say other than a good size statue that also has a scanable or code which then gives you information about the statue.

Not a must see by any stretch but walking around these parks is a good way to spend a few hours.

You can use your smartphone at the statue to hear the statue speak! And be surrounded by very friendly squirrels...

The statue is in the big park. It’s a nice statue. If you are a fan of Peter Pan then it’s probably worth seeing.

Where's Captain Hook and the crocodile?
Jul 2019
This charming statue depicts J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan. The plinth is decorated with small animals and fairies. Personally, I'd have like to have seen Captain Hook and the crocodile as well!
