The Adventures of Paddington” and “The Adventures of Paddington 2”.

The first film will introduce you to a kind bear who comes to England to learn good manners and become a true gentleman.

In the second part, the events only gain momentum and even acquire a shade of thriller. If you find yourself in London and want to visit Paddington, you will not find Windsor Gardens, 32 in Notting Hill, because this place does not really exist. Writer Michael Bond, whose books are based on films, invented it by “mixing” the address of his parents’ Winser Drive with his own – Arundel Gardens. Watch The Adventures of Paddington right now
