  1. Peter Pan Statue, Kensington Gardens, London

This charming bronze statue celebrates Peter Pan and many of his animal friends, the Darling children and the fairies. The story spoke of Peter Pan appearing on this exact spot in the gardens as a seven-month-infant with magical powers. Author J.M. Barrie lived near the Kensington Gardens and couldn’t resist using them in the story. Barrie commissioned the piece, which was designed by Sir George Frampton.

When the kids start getting peckish, take them to a fun place where they can enjoy their surroundings as much as the food. There are many great dining destinations in London and Giraffe World Kitchen has several branches, including this one, just moments away from Victoria Station and close to the theaters. The children’s menu offers breakfast dishes and mains, including Flipping Amazing Pancakes, chicken wraps, burgers and wedges and more, all served in safari-like surroundings.
