One of My Favourite Blue Plaques in London


J.M. Barrie’s blue plaque, the creator of Peter Pan!

Hundreds of blue plaques can be found all around London indicating a place of historical significance and their famous inhabitants. You can go on full day trips with friends trying to locate all plaques. It’s like a treasure-hunt really!

A friend called my attention to a blue plaque one day while we were wandering around. You can quite easily overlook it, but there it was, Sir James M. Barrie’s (1860-1937) blue plaque. Novelist and dramatist – the creator of Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up. I loved reading about Peter’s adventures in Neverland! I’ve walked pass the Peter Pan statue quite a few times but I never realised until then that J.M. Barrie actually got inspired to write the famous play in Kensington Gardens!

Now it’s your turn, go out and see if you can spot a blue plaque of someone you know! Have fun!
