Lose yourself in Neverland at Nottingham Arboretum

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

The Arboretum just outside Nottingham’s city centre is said to be the inspiration behind J.M. Barrie’s classic children’s tale ‘Peter Pan’.

Barrie (1860 – 1937) worked on the Nottingham Journal from 1883 to 1884 and the park, which features a Victorian circular aviary, Chinese bell tower, lake and bandstand, could have formed the basis for Neverland.

Why not take a stroll around this beautiful park and let your imagination run wild? There are over 800 trees to discover, some of which are from the original collection planted in the 19th century, and enough winding paths and open spaces in which to truly escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
