London sets the stage for many fairy tales and inspired many writers throughout history. Peter Pan, written by Scottish novelist J.M. Barrie, wrote several stories about a boy named Peter. “The Little White Bird,” was the first mention of Peter and the middle chapters published as “Peter in the Kensington Garden.” In 1924, Paramount Pictures released a silent filmed called, “Peter Pan.” In the newest Disney versions, you can see Peter and Wendy fly past Big Ben and throughout the London streets. In Kensington Gardens, you’ll notice the popular Peter Pan statue that is one of the most photographed spots in the garden.
