Paddington Railway Station

England: PaddingtonPaddington Railway Station

Location

The Paddington Railway Station in central London became fully operational in May 1854. With its iconic concave interior ceiling, this tube station is known throughout the world thanks to its furry namesake. 

Amidst the typical London chaos of the station you'll find a life-size (or bear-sized) bronze statue of Michael Bond's lonesome Paddington with the attached suitcase tag reading "please look after this bear, thank you".

The station also houses a Paddington bear gift shop for the sole purpose of selling Paddington wares.

 

 

 

Key Scenes

The station is featured in Paddington during the opening of the film where the Brown family disembark their train and head down the expansive platform. Coincidently they meet a young Peruvian Bear to which the family take a liking to. A 'lost and found' sign above Paddington switches to 'found', kickstarting the family's wild adventure.
