About the Paddington Bear Trail
The Paddington Bear Trail, presented by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and STUDIOCANAL, is a celebration of London’s art, culture, and innovation…and the release of Paddington the movie. 50 Paddington Bears statues will be placed throughout the capital, each designed by famous artists, designers, and celebrities, including David Beckham, Benedict Cumberbatch, Nicole Kidman, Guy Ritchie, and Emma Watson, just to name a few. Each statue will be auctioned off by the NSPCC, with the proceeds going to charity.
“Paddington is an explorer – this trail is a wonderful way of bringing this to life and I hope it makes people look at London with fresh eyes,” said actor Hugh Bonneville, who stars in Paddington.
From November 4th to December 30th, visitors will be able to follow their favorite explorer across London, visiting museums, parks, shops, and landmarks along the way. Some of the stops include The Royal Opera House, the Museum of Childhood, the Museum of London, Paddington Station (of course!), and so much more.
“It’s going to be wonderful to see two iconic British institutions – Paddington Bear and the NSPCC – coming together against the backdrop of this wonderful city, to raise vital funds for vulnerable children and their families,” said Peter Wanless, CEO of the NSPCC.
