Paddington: The Story of a Bear is a new, family-friendly exhibition celebrating one of the world’s most beloved fictional bears over 60 years on from when he was first published.

Paddington is a timeless and universal story of desire for home, acceptance and a sense of belonging, which appeals to all ages. Featuring over 50 books, documents, film clips and original artworks, the exhibition will explore Michael Bond’s creation of Paddington, from his arrival in the UK from Peru, to finding a new home, and his exciting adventures in London and beyond. The exhibition includes creative content developed in partnership with two local primary schools in Camden.

Primary school groups can enjoy exclusive timed slots in the exhibition, with activities that develop learners' literacy and support their wellbeing as they explore the gallery and Paddington's story.
