Full description
Explore the streets of London with Paddington Bear™, the lovable fictional character from the children’s books by Michael Bond, 1st published in 1958. In the wake of the new “Paddington Bear” movie, the tour follows in the paw prints of the talking bear, visiting London landmarks from more than 20 books and 2 films. It’s over 50 years since Aunt Lucy went into “The Home for Retired Bears” in Lima, and Paddington Bear™ left darkest Peru to stow away in a ship’s lifeboat with nothing but marmalade to survive. He was eventually found on Paddington Station in London by Mr. and Mrs. Brown, who took him home to live with them and named him “Paddington” after the station. Start the tour with a look at the statue of Paddington Bear™ in the concourse. Visit the station’s Paddington shop to browse the Paddington Bear™ products, and buy some souvenirs of your Paddington Bear™ adventure. Learn about Paddington’s adventures as you travel the streets of London on foot and hear how the StudioCanal movies were made. Test your Paddington Bear™ knowledge en route and see locations that include the site of Mr. Gruber’s antique store and the inspiration for Windsor Gardens, home of the Brown family.
