The Official Paddington Bear Shop in London – Home of the Best Paddington Bear Merchandise
The Paddington Bear London Shop is at Paddington Station, inside the food court area behind the main concourse.
(If you are coming from the tube, head up the escalators, take a left, and do an about turn.)
Look for the bright blue neon sign, saying ‘Paddington’.
You can’t miss it.
Roam the Gnome came with us, dressed in his very own Paddington outfit!
Did you spot him in the crowd of PB teddies above?
Sneak Peek inside Paddington Bear Shop London
Just inside the door of the shop is one of the best loved statues from the Paddington Trail art exhibition.
This was one, arguably the most well-known, of 50 small statues of Paddington placed around London during the lead up to the Paddington movie release in December 2014.
Each statue was decorated by famous artists and well known celebrities from the UK and beyond.
(Hot tip: Want details on the official PB statue in Paddington station? He’s not far away – directions below)
