Peter Pan

If you turn right out of the property and right again into St Petersburg Place, you will soon come to Kensington Gardens. By the large lake in the Gardens known as The Serpentine, is the statue of Peter Pan, the boy who refused to grow up. He was created by JM Barrie, a Scottish author who lived between 1860 and 1939. For the last forty years of his life, he lived just a short walk from The Reem Hotel.

It was here that he met his neighbours, Arthur and Sylvia Llewellyn Davies. Barrie became friends with their three sons - George, Jack and Peter, enchanting them with magical stories. It was to them that Barrie first told the story of a little boy called Peter Pan, who escaped from being a human when he was seven days old and flew to Kensington Gardens to live with the birds and fairies. The book was called The Little White Bird. According to Barrie, all children were birds once. The reason there are bars on nursery windows is because children sometimes forget they no longer have wings, and try to fly away.
