This playful statue depicts Michael Bond’s beloved creation, Paddington, enjoying his favourite food: marmalade sandwiches.

The statue is based on his hugely successful and BAFTA nominated big screen appearances in Paddington (2014) and Paddington 2 (2017), both directed by Paul King and produced by David Heyman (Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, Once Upon a Time….in Hollywood) in which the Peruvian bear is voiced by Ben Whishaw.

Paddington first appeared in Bond’s 1958 children’s book A Bear Called Paddington and many more stories followed, which continue to delight both children and adults alike around the world.

From Paddington Station to Leicester Square


A little known fact is that Paddington has had more statues erected in London than any human.

From the famous statue at Paddington station, to the trail of 52 statues that appeared across London to coincide with the first film’s release, Paddington has truly made his mark on the capital. Here we see him in a different pose, eating his sandwich on a bench, and for the first time in bronze.
