Moat Brae

Moat Brae is packed with opportunities for you to use your imagination and create your own stories. Inside, you will be transported to the Darling Nursery just as Peter Pan flies through the window in search of his shadow; you can find out where Tinkerbell is hiding, crawl into Nana’s kennel, and search for treasure with the Lost Boys on their Neverland pirate ship. Outside, enjoy our Discovery Garden with its fairy doorways, Mermaid’s Lagoon, Tiger Lily’s encampment, Jolly Roger Pirate Ship, Wendy House and much more, all set in a fantasy world of exotic plants and native trees.
