Visiting London? Join the Paddington Trail…


Shakesbear - Michael SheenFifty statues of Paddington Bear have been dotted around London to coincide with the release of the new Paddington movie (in cinemas from November 28th). The trail goes as far west as Heathrow and to the O2 in the East, with stops along the way at The Royal Opera House, Horse Guards Parade, Paddington Station and Selfridges and you can spot the Paddington Bears from today until 30 December.

And they’re worth searching for, too, as the 50 bears include designs by Emma Watson (Flutterby), Hugh Bonneville (The Journey Of Marmalade), Peter Capaldi (Paddington Who?), Michael Sheen (Shakesbear) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Bear). Visit the VisitLondon website to find out more and  view the trail – simply click HERE.

Each of the bears will be auctioned on 10 December to raise money for the NSPCC.
