David Heyman, Producer of Paddington 2, commented: “I am delighted that the public will soon be able to step into the world of Paddington’s Pop-up London – a city which is at the very heart of the film and Michael Bond’s beloved books. These pop-up book installations invite visitors not only from London but all over the world to join Paddington in celebrating this wonderful, open-hearted city.”
