The Paddington Trail

 Yesterday as part of my day trip up London, we went on the The Paddington Trail. We didn't follow any of the set routes, but instead opted for all the bears I wanted to see. First stop, outside Harrods was Flutterby which was designed by Emma Watson.
 A ridiculously picture-esque location, The Journey of Marmalade, situated on the Serpentine Bridge in Hyde Park, was designed by Hugh Bonneville. This was a wonderful one to go and see... many people were crowding around getting pictures taken, and the brightness really stood out in Hyde Park!
 Next stop, Notting Hill Gate to see Guy Ritchie's Dapper Bear.
 I fell in love with Paddingtons Suitcase here. I want a real one!
 Participating in the Paddington Trail, would not feel right if we hadn't stopped off by Paddington Station itself.
 & there we saw the classic Paddington designed by Michael Bond.
 I saw Sparkles designed by Frankie Bridge at Bond Street Station... Paddington was ever so glittery!
 This Paddington, designed by Kate Moss as part of the Selfridges collection, was a must see for me. Unfortunately being in the shop window, it was so hard to get a picture and boy did this window have a crowd!
 Cats is one of my favourite musicals, so seeing Andrew Lloyd Webbers Paddington Lloyd Webber in Chinatown was top of my list.
The last Paddington we saw was the Bear of London designed by Boris Johnson, situated on Trafalgar Square... the Bus themed bag was so lovely!

Have you seen any of the Paddingtons in London or completed the trail? The one I really wanted to see was Bear Grylls Scout Bear ... unfortunately that's at Heathrow!
