Embark on an unforgettable journey through multiple themed rooms, meet familiar faces and venture through the sights and sounds of some of the most iconic locations from the Paddington stories.

What can you expect to see at The Paddington Bear Experience? 

Begin your epic immersive experience in the heart of Paddington Station where you’ll set off on a journey through the sights and sounds of bustling London.

Greeted by the friendly Station Master, hop on board the full-sized train carriage and make the journey across the city and right to the doorstep of the Brown’s House at No. 32 Windsor Gardens. Here you can explore the famous tree adorned hallway and multiple interactive rooms hiding fun surprises that are just waiting to be discovered, and meeting familiar faces from the much-loved books along the way.

Be transported to the magical jungle of Peru, once the home of the beloved Paddington Bear, and beyond to help prepare for the biggest party of the year – the Marmalade Day Festival!

Join the celebrations with Paddington and friends in the life-sized Windsor Gardens and get ready to dance, play festival games and eat and drink special festival treats, including Paddington’s favourite marmalade sandwich!
