Memorials Monuments & Statues, London: 131 reviews and 300 photos
One of London's main line railway stations (trains go to Wales and the South West coast) is Paddington station. It opened 1854 and was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel who has been commemorated on the station by a statue (just as you go into the main entrance for the Underground/Tube).
However these days, Paddington Station is more famous for the childrens story that was named after the Station "Paddington Bear". It is a childrens' story and is about a bear from Peru who arrives in London (Paddington Station) and is adopted and taken hone by a traditionally (well traditional many many years ago) English family.
This statue is in the little shopping complex at the end of the station (the end where the front of the train pulls in to when it arrives at the station). It is quite common to see children (and much older children!) posing for a picture with Paddington Bear.
