Just when everyone thought the euphoria of 2014’s Paddington Bear trail had died down, a new trail is now up and running in London!
This is the Pawprint Trail and once again the famous Paddington Bears seen last year (at least four of them) are placed in London’s streets and parks as part of three bear trails. These are Adventure One, Canalside Views to London Zoo; Adventure Two, Paddle Paws and Play; Adventure Three, Ping Pong, Ponies and Peter Pan. The adventures are basically aimed at kids & their families although adults will no doubt enjoy the sights of the bears once again!
The Paddington Bear shop has leaflets that map out the new Pawprint trail:
At least one of the Paddington Bears, Paddingtonscape, is in its original 2014 location at Norfolk Square just a short distance from Paddington station. Bearing Up and Brick Bear are once again found by the canal wthin the Paddington basin area, although not in their original 2014 locations.
The Pawprint Trail begins at the Paddington Bear Shop in the railway station where the original of the 50 Paddington Bears can be found.
