On your next trip to London, find out where the marmalade-loving bear got his name and started his U.K. adventures.
In Michael Bond’s fictional tale, the bear received his nickname from the railroad stop, Paddington Station, where the Brown family found him after he traveled to London from Peru. Paddington Bear, all dressed in his peacoat and signature red hat, has become somewhat of a mascot for this train station. There’s even a bronze statue of the polite little bear that sits by the station’s escalators. After checking out the bronze bear, embark on your own Paddington-inspired adventures. Stroll along Little Venice and Regent's Canal, and take a peek at St. Mary’s Hospital, where Price William and Henry were born. Once you’ve explored the town to your heart’s content, rest at one of the hotels near Paddington Station.
