Paddington Bear has always been one of London's best-loved residents, but he's become even more popular since he appeared with the Queen at her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Now fans can follow in his paw prints with this 2.5-hour walking tour through London to see some of the sights most associated with the two movies and Michael Bond's children's books.

It’s been fifty years since Michael Bond first told us the story of how Paddington Bear left darkest Peru as a stowaway with nothing but a marmalade sandwich, and was eventually found by Mr and Mrs Brown at Paddington station.

The tour will be begin by looking at his statue and shop inside the station, and take in everything from Mr Gruber's antiques store to the inspiration behind Windsor Gardens -- the Brown's family home.

Along the way your guide will share some interesting trivia, reveal how the movies were made, and test your knowledge of Britain's favourite bear.
