The Paddington Bear Experience is coming to South Bank in May!

29 th February 2024

Paddington fans rejoice – tickets for South Bank's newest immersive attraction The Paddington Bear™ Experience are officially going on sale on Monday 4 March at 10am!

The Paddington Bear Experience officially opens on 31 May 2024 at County Hall in South Bank, with a shop experience inspired by Mr Gruber's Antique Store opening to the public on Friday 1 March.

What is the Paddington Bear Experience?

This unique and fun-filled interactive experience is inspired by the nation’s favourite bear and spans a huge area of more than 26,000 feet inside South Bank's historic County Hall. Visitors are invited to step into Paddington’s world and embark on an exciting immersive adventure through some of the most memorable locations from the Paddington stories.

The journey begins with the hustle and bustle of Paddington Station where a friendly Station Master will greet you and invite you to hop on board, passing by famous landmarks on a trip to the Brown family home at No. 32 Windsor Gardens. Once inside the famous house, the Brown family will be there to whisk guests away onto a whirlwind of multi-sensory activities as they help Paddington Bear and his family prepare for a very special occasion – The Marmalade Day Festival!

The experience promises numerous themed rooms to explore, interactive games, character interactions, and lots of surprises along the way, ending with a very special Windsor Garden Street party where visitors will get to celebrate the Marmalade Day festival - with of course the opportunity to indulge in Paddington’s famous marmalade sandwiches!

The Paddington Bear™ Experience is presented by The Path Entertainment Group and The Copyrights Group (a STUDIOCANAL company) in collaboration with Lionsgate, Copyrights’ agent for experiences, directed by Tom Maller for Immersive Octopus.
