Family Travel Idea: Get Lost with Paddington in London

December 14, 2014 Leigh Powell Hines

Paddington Movie 2015 From the maker’s of Harry Potter, Paddington Bear is coming to the big screen for the very first time in a new adventure.

At Skimbaco, we love to find holiday gift ideas that enable you to explore the world. On January 16, 2015, the movie Paddington will be released in the U.S.  It is sure to be a family favorite.  Paddington Bear was my husband’s favorite stuffed friend as a child. In fact, we still have his original Paddington Bear for our children to love.

Draycott Paddington Experience

Paddington opened in the U.K. in late November, and it out performed Disney’s Frozen in one weekend. Just in time for the U.S. release,  the luxurious boutique hotel, The Draycott Hotel, has created the Get Lost with Paddington experience for families.

I’m so ready to pack our bags for London to do this.   I’ll take four airline tickets to London, please Santa!
