Every British child loves the stories of Paddington bear, one of the most beloved characters in English children’s literature. The book ‘A bear called Paddington’ is about a bear who arrives from Peru and gets off the train at Paddington Station. In fact, the bear is so well-known that there is a statue dedicated to him in the station itself. Just 10 minutes north of Paddington is the area known as Little Venice with its cafés and bars along the Regent’s Canal.
