Paddington Station

Paddington Bear at Paddington Station

Paddington Station is a very important place for Paddington Bear. It is where he was first found by Mr. and Mrs. Brown when he arrived in London and of course it is also the reason he got his name.

To commemorate this there is a life-sized bronze statue of Paddington in the station. Designed by the sculptor Marcus Cornish, the statue was unveiled by Michael Bond on 24th February 2000.  It sits under the clock on platform 1, to mark the location in Paddington's movie where he first meets the Brown family.

In December 2016 a brand new shop will be opening in Paddington Station.  Until then a small pop-up shop is selling all the ‘bear’ essentials such as the books and bears which is located in the centre of the station in 'The Lawn' area.
