The Paddington Bear™ Experience to open in London

Let’s swiftly move on from the Willy Wonka disaster in Glasgow for a real treat for the kids…

Created as a unique and fun-filled interactive experience inspired by the nation’s favourite bear The Paddington Bear™ Experience will open on Friday 31st May 2024. The attraction will span more than 26,000 square feet of London’s iconic County Hall on the riverside of the Southbank.

Visitors are invited to step into Paddington’s world and embark on an exciting immersive adventure through some of the most memorable locations from the Paddington stories. Starting with the hustle and bustle of Paddington Station, guests will be greeted by a friendly Station Master and taken on a lively train journey through London’s most famous landmarks to the Browns’ charming house at No. 32 Windsor Gardens.

Once inside the famous tree-adorned hallway, the Brown family will whisk guests into a whirlwind of multi-sensory activities as they need to help Paddington and his family prepare for a very special occasion – The Marmalade Day Festival!

With numerous themed rooms to explore, interactive games, character interactions, and lots of surprises along the way, the adventure will culminate in a very special Windsor Garden Street party where visitors will have the chance to enjoy the Marmalade Day festival. A range of food (including Paddington’s famous marmalade sandwich!) and beverages will be available to all, as well as an opportunity to enjoy fun and games with the Brown family. The Paddington Bear™ Experience will capture the hearts of the entire family, no matter the age.

Paddington fans should also be on the lookout for ‘Mr Gruber’s Shop’ which is now open (since 1st March) at London County Hall. Inspired by the enchanting antique store in the Paddington stories, Mr Gruber’s Shop will give a first glimpse into what to expect from The Paddington Bear™ Experience as well as the opportunity to-purchase tickets and Paddington™ merchandise.

2023 marked 65 years since a kind bear from Peru with a big appetite for marmalade was first introduced to the world. Paddington is a beloved children’s character, created by author Michael Bond in 1958. The first book, ‘A Bear Called Paddington,’ introduced readers to the friendly and polite bear from Peru who is discovered by the Brown family at Paddington Station in London. The following series of stories chronicle Paddington’s adventures in London and around the world. Since its first publication, the Paddington books, published by Harper Collins, have sold more than 40 million copies worldwide.

The popularity of these books led to numerous adaptations, including television shows and feature films. In 2014, a live-action feature film called ‘Paddington’ was released, which was followed by a sequel, ‘Paddington 2‘ in 2017. A third film, ‘Paddington in Peru‘ will be released in the UK on 8th November 2024. The movies are produced by STUDIOCANAL, part of CANAL+ Group,

In 2020, a brand-new Paddington TV series designed for a preschool audience, ‘The Adventures of Paddington,’ launched on Nickelodeon, introducing him to a whole new set of fans.

The Paddington Bear™ Experience is presented by The Path Entertainment Group and The Copyrights Group (a STUDIOCANAL company) in collaboration with Lionsgate, Copyrights’ agent for experiences.
