J M Barrie’s Birthplace

The world-famous creator of Peter Pan was born in this traditional weaver’s house.

Things to do

Self-guided tours

Upon arrival, we’ll offer you an introduction to J M Barrie and his home. We then invite you to take a self-guided tour – each room has information sheets but please feel free to ask us any questions about the property or the man.

Watch out for the hidden gems and the secret doodles on the settle!

Find out about the story behind Barrie’s christening shawl and the origins of the name Wendy.

Children’s activities

Outside, we have the original Wendy house and a small garden for children to play in – how many animals can you spot on the Peter Pan statue?


We welcome school visits at J M Barrie’s Birthplace. For more information, please see our Learning pages.
