Michael Bond’s fictional character Paddington Bear was given his name in the story because he was found at Paddington station. A statue of the marmalade-loving Peruvian immigrant, created by British sculptor Marcus Cornish, now stands in the station, where there is also a Paddington Bear merchandise store.

The new Crossrail network will have a terminus at Paddington, and is projected to be running in 2018.

The Labyrinth at Putney Bridge is missing, any idea why? it’s not on the list of removed Labyrinths

Began discovering the Labyrinths a few weeks ago and am trying to collect pictures of there wherever i go. Paddington was always the gateway to London for me as i lived in Berkshire and the station still appears much the same to me as it did on my first trips to London as a child and school visits.
