London's Paddington Bear Trail

Paddington Bear has long held a special place in the hearts of Londoners, fast becoming a household name after the release of ‘A Bear Called Paddington’ back in 1958 and remaining one of the capital’s most endearing fictional characters. Famously found at Paddington Station with his trademark duffle coat, red hat and battered suitcase, the Peruvian bear has since been featured in more than 80 individual stories, translated in more than 30 languages around the world and a hugely popular BBC TV series. This year, the lovable bear is making a comeback, with the long-awaited Paddington Bear movie set to be released at the end of November, celebrated by the arrival of London’s Paddington Bear Trail.

The Saloon at Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey)

Downton Abbey’s highly anticipated 5th season is now showing in the UK (unfortunately, American viewers will have to wait until January 2015) and there are plenty of changes underway as the Crawley family and staff discover the freedoms of life in the roaring 20s. One thing that remains unchanged though, is the grand estate of Downton Abbey itself and touring the 17th-century Highclere Castle – the real-life Downton Abbey – is an unforgettable experience for fans of the period drama. This year there’s an even more glamorous way to tour Downton Abbey, as for one night only the owners of the magnificent 1,000-acre private estate, the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, will be hosting a Downton Abbey Experience Champagne reception at Highclere Castle.
