Free Heathrow Express

Heathrow Express is introducing a number of offers and events for families to tie in with the much-anticipated Paddington film which opens in the UK on 28 November and Paddington trail which launches on 4 November. 

With immediate effect children travel free on the Heathrow Express until the end of the year.  The online offer is for up to two children under the age of 15 when accompanied by an adult.

Families travelling on the Heathrow Express on 29 October will get the chance to meet Paddington on board as the train company announces its support for the film.  

The live-action feature film based on the marmalade-loving bear from darkest Peru, has been a long time coming. Created by author Michael Bond in the 1950s, some 30 million books following the bear's various adventures have been sold worldwide. Turned into a popular television series, Paddington, with his distinctive Wellington boots, old hat and duffle coat, was portrayed by a stop-motion puppet. A 1976 movie was made with conventional animation.

The new production bristles with the latest technology, including a computer-generated Paddington who stars together with Nicole Kidman as a taxidermist looking to complete her collection of rare animals and Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville and Julie Walters.  www.paddington.com/gb/the-movie   www.heathrowexpress.com
