J M Barrie (1860–1937), the creator of much-loved character Peter Pan and a celebrated novelist and dramatist, was born in this two-storied house on 9 May.
The upper floors are furnished much as they may have been when Barrie lived here.
You can also visit an exhibition – ‘The Genius of J M Barrie’ – in the adjacent house (No. 11), which focuses on Barrie’s literary and theatrical works. Barrie’s very first plays were rehearsed and performed in the outside wash-house, which served as his first theatre.
The garden has been redeveloped to include a Peter Pan statue – as well as other statues celebrating Barrie’s most famous work.
As befits the author of such a timeless classic, J M Barrie’s Birthplace is a magical, mysterious and emotionally resonant experience for all who visit.
