A new series of Paddington-themed family adventures has been launched by the Paddington Partnership jointly with Londonist and the creators of Paddington Bear, Paddington & Co. The Pawprint Trail starts at the Paddington Bear Shop at Paddington Station and features four of the Paddington Bear statues that made up the Paddington Trail in late 2014.

Adventure One, Canalside Views to London Zoo, sees visitors on the trail hunt out a very special blue-flocked Paddington in Paddington Central's Sheldon Square, where events and a big screen offer the perfect spot for a picnic. The adventure continues into Little Venice, maybe for elevenses at the Waterside Cafe, the Puppet Theatre Barge and the Waterbus to ZSL London Zoo and Camden Lock.
