“Planning a holiday – especially a holiday abroad – was much more complicated than he had imagined, and he decided the only thing to do was to consult his friend Mr Gruber on the subject.”
from Paddington Abroad – Michael Bond
In a bustling train station in the middle of London, we were on an adventure, in search for the Paddington Bear Store! My children eagerly tracing the steps of a marmalade eating, cute and cuddly bear who originated from “Darkest Peru” to settle into the ever vibrant city of London!
What’s not to love about Paddington Bear and his classical tale for both the young and old!
Accordingly, whilst in London, a visit to The Paddington Bear Store at Paddington Station was essential. It’s the only shop in the world entirely devoted to Paddington merchandise. We were welcomed by the giant statue of Paddington himself, as he raised his hat to greet us, and were mesmorised by the endless amount of books, gifts and the huge range of bears in all shapes and sizes, available for sale. Paddington Bear fans beware, how can you resist leaving without one of these!!!!

“Please look after this Bear. Thank you “
