Tickets are now available to the Paddington Bear Experience 2024 in London’s iconic County Hall on the riverside of the Southbank. The experience begins May 31.

Created by The Path Entertainment Group in collaboration with The Copyrights Group (a STUDIOCANAL company), and Lionsgate, Copyrights’ agent for experiences, this unique and fun-filled interactive experience was inspired by the UK’s favorite bear.

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 all the way 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 BearTM Experience will capture the hearts of the entire family.

Paddington fans should also be on the lookout for ‘Mr Gruber’s Shop’ which opened March 1 at London County Hall. Inspired by the enchanting antique store in the Paddington stories, Mr Gruber’s Shop gives a first glimpse into what to expect from The Paddington Bear Experience as well as the opportunity to-purchase tickets and 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 series of stories that followed, 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.
