Experience the delightful antics of Paddington Bear™ on a 2.5-hour London bus tour. Cruise through the city by coach to visit the iconic landmarks featured in the classic Paddington book series and film such as Mr Gruber’s antiques shop on Portobello Road and Paddington’s home in Windsor Gardens. Finish at the Paddington Railway Station, where the Brown family first met their beloved brown bear.
Your afternoon tour of Paddington Bear’s London begins at Marylebone Railway Station. Make your own way there to meet your expert guide and board the comfortable coach. As you set off, catch up on your Paddington history with the story of how the charming little bear arrived in the bustling metropolis, fresh off a boat from Peru.
Your first stop is on Portobello Road to visit Mr Gruber’s antiques shop, where Paddington went every day to chat and take his elevenses, a mid-morning break of tea and cookies – and marmalade! Along the way, pass through the vibrant Portobello Market, stocked to the brim with antiques, produce and more.
Hop back on the coach for a delightful ride through some of the lesser-known locations from Paddington's everyday. As you wind through London, get the inside scoop on the film production, hear about the bear's adventures and recall your favorite moments in the stories with fellow Paddington-enthusiasts. Pass Windsor Gardens where the Brown family home is located, and where Paddington came to live after the Browns found him in London’s Paddington Station.
This landmark train station is your last stop on the tour. View the station’s lovely bronze statue of the duffle-coat-wearing bear and visit the Paddington shop to browse a vast array of products. Your 3-hour tour ends here, so take your time choosing the perfect souvenir for yourself or any other Paddington-loving friend!
Excellent tour and great tour guide. My two 9 year old girls thoroughly enjoyed it, and I did too.
The tour guide was informative and the small group was the perfect size. Highly recommended
This could have been really cute, but our guide was completely lackluster and did not seem to care about the tour at all. She started by arriving late and it all went downhill from there. First, the DVD which provided a majority of the information was not working, and rather than work with and entertain her guests, she sat silent through much of the tour, offering some grainy movie stills as a way of compensation. Our Paddington loving family was very disappointed and felt that this was proof that a particular guide can make or break any given tour.
