At home with Paddington Bear
The athenaeum has teamed up with Action Medical Research, the charity for which Paddington has been an official mascot for over 30 years, to offer guests who book the Paddington package a limited edition Paddington watercolor print. The previously unpublished paintings of Paddington were illustrated by Peggy Fortnum and the prints have been signed by the creator of Paddington, Michael Bond.
What a wonderful chance for fans of the classic tale to own a piece of Paddington history. Each image has been limited to a worldwide edition of 495 prints, making them a rare and collectable item.
The Paddington Bear Break(tm) includes one of three limited edition prints, a Paddington afternoon tea for the family as well as a stay in one of the hotel's luxurious suites or exclusive apartments. This package is available from £568 (approximately $885.00) including VAT.
The athenaeum is a true family friendly hotel; from the dedicated kids concierge, which has special recommendations and games for children of all ages, to milk and cookies at bedtime, nothing is too much trouble. No wonder so many families call it their home from home in London.
Paddington famously kept a supply of marmalade sandwiches under his hat, but there are plenty of other ways for Paddington to get his paws sticky at the athenaeum. The Paddington tea is a great way to celebrate the family friendly nature of the athenaeum and the film release of the classic children's story. What's more, for every Paddington tea booked, the hotel will donate £5 to Action Medical Research.
