Wonderful couple of hours seeing some of the places Paddington movie was being filmed.
Our tour guide Fiona was very enthusiastic and shared so much interesting information about our beloved Paddington. My daughter was given an important role in holding the Paddington teddy bear 🧸 - a role she loved. The pace of the tour was perfect and we all really enjoyed it. Would recommend for children and adults alike.
