We left Oxford and caught the train to London and arrived at Paddington Station.
A monument of a soldier in Winter uniform during the Great War of 1914-1918. It commemorates the 2500 employees of the GWR who gave their ultimate sacrifice.
Statue of Paddington Bear.
This is where the Brown family first met the darkest Peruvian bear visitor at Platform 1 at Paddington Station.
The bronze statue is very shiny after all the hands that have touched and rubbed Paddington Bear. This included his creator and author Michael Bond.
A blonde haired English lady noticed me trying to take a photograph of Paddington and she moved them away and said: "Let this man take a photo of Paddington".
I laughed and said to her: "You can't come to Paddington Station and not take a picture of Paddington."
She laughed and we waved 😃.
Did you see Paddington2 when he nearly died? We wanted something highbrow to watch one Christmas and my wife and me thought he was going to die. Paddington Bear is like an action hero. He always survives somehow.
On to Canterbury in my next post. Hope you're enjoying my trip?
