Moat Brae Opens its Doors

Public Tours of Moat Brae (Sat 8th March – Sat 19th April 2014)

We are delighted to announce that The Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust will run free public tours to allow visitors to see the progress that has been achieved at Moat Brae House from Saturday 8th March to Saturday 19th April 2014.

The tours will be conducted by our valiant volunteers and offer an opportunity to see the house as Phase A Works are now completed and Moat Brae, Birthplace of Peter Pan, is saved for the Dumfries community.

This stunning building has reached the first stage of restoration and is now wind and watertight, complete with a new roof and fully restored windows.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to find out about the future plans to create an international family visitor attraction and a national centre for children’s literature and storytelling. Views, thoughts and ideas will be welcome from visitors in order to inform the process. The Trust would like to know what local people think and what they would like to see and do at Moat Brae.

OPENING TIMES (Sat 8th March to Sat 19th April 2014)

The house will be open for  conducted tours (lasting around half to three quarters of an hour), led by volunteers

Wednesdays 2pm - 6pm (last entry 5.30pm)

Saturdays & Sundays 12pm - 4pm (last entry 3.30pm)

Free tours of the basement, ground and chamber floors will run approximately every half hour, booking not necessary. Maximum 12 people per tour. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Please note the house is not yet fully accessible. Entrance is up a short flight of stairs, please wear sensible shoes and warm clothes. The Trust will also consult with groups and organisations on the future accessibility of the project and will be happy to hear from individuals who may be able to contribute in this respect.
