Paddington Bear™ Walking Tour for Four
Did you know that London is the 3rd busiest film production centre in the world? With its unique charm and history, both London and throughout the UK have long been featured in film and TV, from Bridget Jones to Pride and Prejudice and from Harry Potter to James Bond. It is one giant movie set.
Founded in 2009 by Director Lewis Swan, a graduate of the University of London, Brit Movie Tours is a family run business that offer more than just sightseeing tours. Departing from locations in London, Bath and South Wales, their diverse range of walking and bus tours educate, entertain and appeal to visitors of all ages, nationalities and interests bringing these movies and TV shows to life.
"TV and Film fans love to know more about their favourite films and the actors who starred in them," says Lewis Swan, Brit Movie Tours founder. "To see or stand at a location where a favourite film or TV show was shot or a famous actor or actress strolled is a huge thrill for movie fans."
Over 50 years ago after his Aunt Lucy went into The Home for Retired Bears in Lima, Paddington Bear™ left darkest Peru and, after stowing away in a ship’s lifeboat and living on marmalade, arrived in London. He was found on Paddington Station by Mr and Mrs Brown who took him home to live with them, naming him Paddington after the station where he was found.
It is here where the walking tour begins and you’ll have the opportunity to visit the statue of Paddington and visit the Paddington shop which stocks a wide range of Paddington products. Now he has his second movie, you can follow in Paddington’s paw prints with the official Paddington Bear™ Tour of London and visit some of London’s neighbourhoods and sites that have featured in more than 20 books, plus several film locations from both movies.
