Travel Guide

Discover the world of Enid Blyton

Enid Mary Blyton (11 August 1897 – 28 November 1968) was an English children’s author. Her most famous books are the Secret Seven, Famous Five and Noddy. She also wrote The Magic Faraway Tree and the Wishing Chair among others.

She was born in East Dulwich in London and was the oldest of three children. The family home was in Ondine Street and there is a blue plaque to mark the house.

The family later moved to Old Thatch in Bourne End (this was called Peterswood in her books) In 1938, they moved to a house in Beaconsfield, which was named Green Hedges by Blyton’s readers following a competition in her magazine.

A house in Hook Road Chessington was the home where she lived from 1920 – 1924.

Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books in Newcastle upon Tyne, holds the largest public collection of Blyton’s papers and memorabilia.
