"Do you want to fly with me to Kensington Park, Never, Neverland?" Peter Pan might have asked Wendy as he took her hand.  That is the version by Walt Disney that we remember.  There were many versions of the story about the boy who wouldn't grow up.  Here you see Peter Pan where he takes up residency with the fairies in Kensington Park, the 275 acre gardens of the Royal Parks of London.  A new stage production of J. M. Barrie's classic story performed in a specially commissioned, state-of-the-art theatre pavilion in view of the Peter Pan statue can be seen now and into September..

One thought on “Peter Pan and Kensington Park, London, England”

  1. Why on earth have you changed the name of Kensington Gardens? And why mention Walt Disney, that perpetrator of the ghastly dumbing down of wonderful stories, when the original play is so delightful?

    I do like your choice of photograph, though. My mother often took me there for walks when I was little, shortly after the war ended, so I remember it well – if from the lower perspective of a 3 or 4 year-old!
