Plan Your Visit


Moat Brae is currently only open for special events and open days.  Individual and group tours can sometimes be arranged by appointment, please email or call the office on 01387 255 549

When it opens in Spring 2019, the new Centre will be fully accessible,  providing an environment and activities open and available to all.

Mid-Restoration Phase

When you visit Moat Brae you will find a partially renovated house and will have access to some of the garden.  Until 2014 the house was completely out-of-bounds and derelict.  Today, it is wind and watertight with a new roof and windows, and waiting expectantly for the next stage of renovation.


You are welcome to come to one of our advertised open days and see behind the scenes at Moat Brae – Birthplace of Peter Pan.


*We will be opening the doors of Moat Brae for free open days to show the achievements made in saving this historic, Georgian property from decay and demolition.
Find out more about how it inspired one of the world’s most famous stories and see the plans to turn Moat Brae and its ‘enchanted’ garden into an international visitor attraction and centre for children’s literature and storytelling which is due to open in 2018.


Recent works to give our beautiful Georgian building a new roof and windows and make it wind and watertight were completed in early 2014 and we have since welcomed thousands of people of all ages to look around, respond to the plans for its future and contribute their ideas.

Free tours of the basement, ground and chamber floors will run approximately every half hour, booking is not necessary. Maximum 12 people per tour. Children must be accompanied by an adult. There will be limited access to the garden. Please note the house is mid-restoration and not yet fully accessible and is quite dusty. The entrance is up a short flight of stairs, please wear sensible shoes, there are no toilet facilities.

No Need to Book, but you can email or call 01387 255 549.
