1. Peter Pan

Show sight on map Book Ticket*

The statue of Peter Pan is a 1912 bronze sculpture of J. M. Barrie's character Peter Pan. It was commissioned by Barrie and made by Sir George Frampton. The original statue is displayed in Kensington Gardens in London, to the west of The Long Water, close to Barrie's former home on Bayswater Road. Barrie's stories were inspired in part by the gardens: the statue is at the place where Peter Pan lands in Barrie's 1902 book The Little White Bird after flying out of his nursery. Six other casts made by Frampton have been erected in other places around the world.

Show sight on map

The Procathedraal of the Holy Trinity is an Anglican church building in the Brussels municipality of Ixelles. The Anglican community, which has been present in Brussels for some two hundred years, originally met in private homes. It was only after the Battle of Waterloo that the first regular municipalities were established. The first chapel of this municipality was located in the Belliardstraat in Brussels. The present church was built between 1883 and 1885 by contractor Jean François according to the plans of architect William Barber. In 1897 the church was extended with the choir to a design by the architects Huvenne and Jasinski. After the First World War, in 1928, the Church House (presbytery) was established along the street. In 2001, a modern hall complex was added to the church building.
