Follow the Paddington Bear Trail

Last updated 26th July 2022


Paddington Bear is making a major comeback this winter with the hotly-anticipated Paddington film released on 28 November, starring Hugh Bonneville and Nicole Kidman. Young fans can get in on the action by following The Paddington Trail – 50 Paddington Bear statues have been decorated by famous artists, designers and celebrities like Benedict Cumberbatch and Emma Watson, and placed at London’s key landmarks.

Don’t miss the out-of-this-world bear hiding at The Royal Observatory, or the fabulous Paddington at Selfridges. The 3ft 6in statues will be auctioned later in the year to raise money for charities including the NSPCC and its Childline service.

The Paddington Bear Trail is open 4 November 2014 to 30 December 2014.
