London events in May
London events on 1st May
Need some inspiration for 1st May? The Peter Pan statue appeared in Kensington Gardens on this day in 1912. When the children went to bed there was nothing there, and when they woke up next morning it had magically appeared beside the lake. Why not take a walk around the Serpentine and see if you can find it?
