Stock up on lots of marmalade sandwiches and go in search of one of the world’s most-loved bears as 50 Paddington Bear statues pop up at some of London’s most famous landmarks from November 4 – December 30.

From Heathrow to the O2 in Greenwich, follow in the furry footsteps of Paddington on a trail that takes in The Royal Opera House, Museum of London, Horse Guards Parade and, of course,
Paddington Station.

"Paddington is an explorer - this trail is a wonderful way of bringing this to life and I hope it
makes people look at London with fresh eyes. I am delighted to have been asked to design one of
the bears and have created an ode to Paddington’s favourite preserve. I can’t wait for people to
see it.”
- Hugh Bonneville.

The trail has been created especially to celebrate the brand new Paddington film, with many of the
starring actors helping to bring the three and a half foot statues to life with their own unique designs.

Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters and Nicole Kidman will all leave their mark, along with the likes of
David Beckham, Boris Johnson and Emma Watson. Which one will be your favourite?
