Join us as we open 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 this enchanted land 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.

Don’t forget to feed our hungry crocodile and leave us a message on The ‘Happy Thoughts’ Tree.

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 limited toilet facilities.
