London Living with an Alternative Twist!

The Paddington Trail, London

So two days over the Christmas break the chap and I headed into London on the quest for Paddington Bears! Yes you read that right, there were 50 official bears and 6 unofficial Paddington Bears placed around London and we set out to find as many as we could!


I’m not going to bore you with all the photos of the 41 bears we found so these are just a few of my favourites!


The chap edited his version of the Union Jack one and I’ve had it turned into a canvas and he’s working on his own Paddington masterpiece for his living room!

In total we walked almost 50,000 steps around London to find them!  We went to Bethnal Green, Mayfair, Piccadilly, Greenwich, Covent Garden, Holborn, and of course Paddington!  We had to skip a few in the likes of Heathrow, Stamford Bridge and Primrose Hill as we simply didn’t have enough time!  I think in total we spent about 11 hours out on the hunt, we may have got a little too involved for our good!

All that is left to do now is print my certificate and frame it!

Did you go out on a bear hunt?
