The trail will take in some key cultural and landmark hotspots such as The Royal Opera House, Museum of London, Horse Guards Parade, the Museum of Childhood, and Paddington Station, with the trail ending in Selfridges from 4th November until 30th December 2014.
The Paddington design team includes Darcey Bussell, Davina McCall, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, and Jonathan Ross, Bear Grylls, the Chelsea football team, the England rugby union team and Boris Johnson.
The first of the designs were also revealed: Paddington Bear by Michael Bond, Paddington Shakesbear by Michael Sheen, Paddington Sparkles by Frankie Bridge and Paddingtonscape by artist Hannah Warren. The designers are working on some of the 50 Paddington Bear statues which will be placed across the capital ahead of the release of Paddington in UK cinemas on 28th November 2014.
VisitLondon.com has also launched a dedicated section which will enable visitors to find out more about the trail and, later in the month, download the trail map, share their pictures and discover the stories behind each statue and location.
Studiocanal and Heyday Films has also announced that Michael Gambon and Imelda Staunton have joined the cast of Paddington to play Paddington’s uncle Pastuzo and aunt Lucy.
