JM Barrie's Birthplace

Door open days

14 September 2019 (11am to 3.30pm)


J M Barrie, creator of Peter Pan, spent his childhood in this small whitewashed cottage. The cottage is a typical weaver’s house; everyone lived upstairs and the windows are large so that looms could be removed.

Stop by the washhouse where the young author performed his first play at the age of seven and that provided inspiration for the Wendy House in Peter Pan, see the box beds where the Barrie children would have slept crowded together and look out for original costumes from the first production of Peter Pan.
