Experience the Bible in Real Life: The Best Christian Tours of Israel

For many Christians, visiting the Holy Land is a dream come true. Walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ and experiencing the places where biblical events took place is a powerful and transformative experience. If you’re planning a trip to Israel and want to make the most of your time there, consider booking one of these best Christian tours of Israel.

Why Visit Israel?

Before diving into specific tour options, it’s important to understand why visiting Israel is so significant for Christians. For starters, it’s the birthplace of Christianity and home to many important biblical sites such as Bethlehem, Nazareth, and Jerusalem. It’s also a way to connect with the history and culture of Judaism, which provides context for understanding Christianity.

Moreover, visiting Israel is an opportunity to deepen your faith by experiencing firsthand the places where Jesus performed miracles and taught his disciples. It’s one thing to read about these events in a book; it’s another thing entirely to stand where they happened.

What Makes a Great Christian Tour?

When choosing a Christian tour of Israel, there are several factors to consider. First and foremost is the itinerary – does it include all of the sites you want to visit? Does it allow enough time at each site for reflection and prayer? You’ll also want to look for tours led by knowledgeable guides who can provide historical context as well as spiritual insight.

Another consideration is group size – do you prefer a smaller group for more personalized attention or are you comfortable with larger groups? Finally, cost may be a factor as well – some tours include meals and accommodations while others require you to arrange those separately.

Top Christian Tours of Israel

Holy Land VIP Tours – This tour company offers private tours customized according to your interests and schedule. You’ll have your own guide who can provide personalized insight into each site visited. Some of the tour options include a visit to the Garden Tomb, a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, and a walk through the ancient city of Jericho.

Israel Christian Tours – This company offers both group and private tours led by experienced Christian guides. You’ll visit all of the major biblical sites as well as lesser-known locations such as Caesarea Philippi and Mount Tabor. The tour also includes accommodations and meals.

Sar-El Tours & Conferences – This tour company specializes in Christian tours of Israel and has been operating for over 30 years. The tours are led by Messianic Jewish guides who provide unique insight into both Judaism and Christianity. You’ll visit sites such as Masada, Qumran, and the Western Wall.

Final Thoughts

Visiting Israel is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many Christians. By choosing one of these best Christian tours of Israel, you can ensure that your trip is not only informative but also spiritually enriching. Remember to choose a tour that fits your interests, budget, and travel style so that you can fully immerse yourself in this incredible journey through biblical history.

Where to find Paddington Bear in London

Pack your marmalade sandwiches (duffel coats optional) – if you’re wondering where to find Paddington Bear in London with kids, I’ve tracked down all the essential locations for fans of the loveable bear from Darkest Peru.

contains affiliate links *

While you can no longer follow the Paddington trail, which took place in 2014 with 50 Paddington bear statues in London to celebrate the release of the first movie, you can check out the ongoing Pawprint trail to find several current statues.

There are also Paddington Bear walking tours, Paddington themed afternoon tea and locations from both the books and the movies to spot – not forgetting Paddington station itself, of course.

Buy Paddington’s Guide to London to have the bear himself introduce you to the city, along with these other great books about London for kids

See the Paddington statues

Start your Paddington-themed visit to London by finding the Paddington statues dotted around the city, starting (of course) at the station which gave him his name.

Paddington station

For fans of Paddington Bear (and who isn’t?), you can’t miss a visit to Paddington Station, where the furry hero of the books was first found by the Browns and received his name.

The lifesize bronze statue with the label asking people to look after this bear is back in its usual home by Platform 1, after a brief stint near the Praed Street entrance, between Platforms 9 and 10.

The station is also home to the Paddington bench, where kids can sit next to him and pose for photos – head over towards the Paddington shop to find it.

The Pawprint trail

The station is also the starting point for the  Pawprint Trail  – three trails, in fact, each with one of the Paddington statues from the 2014 collection dotted around the city.

Pick up your free map from the Paddington shop in the station and head off on one of the three ‘adventures’. Or all three, of course.

Adventure One: Canalside Views to London Zoo takes you to the Grand Union Canal, where you can spot Bearing Up, a blue flock Paddington tucked under a bridge, as you wander past the barges and string of cafes.

This particular statue is now back again, after a quick restoration of his fur

The route leads you on to Little Venice and beyond, where you could hop onto the Waterbus to Camden Lock, which passes London Zoo – keep your eyes open for monkeys and painted dogs (though you won’t spot bears en route.

Adventure Two: Boating, Bears and Bridges leads the opposite way along the canal to Paddington Basin, where you’ll spot Brick Bear as you head over towards Merchant Square.

Time your visit for Wednesdays and Fridays at noon and you can watch the fan bridge lift too, as well as checking out the Floating Pocket Park (mini green spaces which bob on the water).

Adventure Three: Ping Pong, Ponies and Peter Pan leads to Norfolk Square Gardens – temporarily home to a special exhibition of statues made with Lego-style bricks in summer 2022 – where you can spot Paddingtonscape, as Paddington tries his paw at some chess.

If you’re visiting outside the summer months, he sensibly hibernates in the Hilton London Paddington instead.

Keep walking and the route takes you to Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, where you can see the Two Bears fountain near Lancaster Gate and the Italian Gardens in the northern end of the park. Not Paddington, admittedly, but a bonus bear never goes amiss.

Paddington Green

For a less well-known statue of Paddington, head to St Mary’s Churchyard at nearby Paddington Green.

You’ll find him commemorated here with his creator Michael Bond, one of the  Sustrans portrait benches  dotted around the country – the churchyard also features two other locals, nurse Mary Seacole and mathematician and codebreaker Alan Turing.

Leicester Square

While most of the Paddington statues cluster around Paddington station, you can find him right in the centre of London too.

There’s also a statue of Paddington with his famous marmalade sandwiches among the statues in Leicester Square , one of a string of stars from the world of film.

As another bear bonus, watch out for Bear Street which leads from Leicester Square to Charing Cross Road.

Paddington Bear afternoon tea in London

If you’re looking for Paddington Bear afternoon tea, London has a new option that’s perfect for kids.

The Paddington Afternoon Tea Bus Tour launches on October 26, available weekly from Wednesdays to Sundays, with an afternoon tea inspired by food Paddington would love to get his paws on – including, of course, a great marmalade sandwich.

Using an iconic double-decker Routemaster bus, the Paddington afternoon tea tour by Brigit’s Bakery – also behind the Peppa Pig afternoon tea bus tours – travels around central London and some of Paddington’s favourite London landmarks.

Along the way, you’ll hear about some of his adventures and mishaps, as well as getting to see the sights. Each table has a built-in screen with a Paddington-guided animation, where Paddington and Mrs Bird share their knowledge of the city’s other icons.

Lasting 1 hour 45 minutes, it’s recommended for age 5+. There are vegan, vegetarian, halal and gluten-free menus, but no toilets aboard.

There are regularly other Paddington-themed afternoon teas, often to mark the launch of a new film or a special event – previously including the Athanaeum and Aquashard among others.

Paddington Bear walking tour

While it’s easy to put together your own Paddington Bear walking tour of London, Brit Movie Tours leads its own ‘official’ Paddington tour as well.

Starting at Paddington station, it takes you to some of the filming locations from the movies as well as covering places mentioned in over 15 Paddington Bear books.

As well as passing through Little Venice, you’ll end up at the Portobello Road, where Mr Gruber had his antiques shop. There’s a discount for children under three go free – the tour lasts around 2-2 ½ hours so there’s a lot of walking for little ones though.

Also available to book through Viator , with a reserve now, pay later option, as well as free cancellation tickets.

Or pick up Paddington’s Guide to London with Paddington’s own tips on exploring the city.

Locations from the Paddington books

If you want to make your own Paddington-themed walking tour of London, it’s easy to stroll between some of the key locations as well as combining them with the Pawprint trail.

Read on to see some of the locations from the movies too

Paddington station is one of the best places to start, where Paddington began his own journey.

Don’t miss Portobello Road either, where the little bear would go for elevenses at Mr Gruber’s antiques shop.

Blurred shot of people walking along colourful Portobello Road in London, one of the locations from the Paddington books in London

But there’s no point trying to find 32 Windsor Gardens – author Michael Bond combined his address with his parents’ details, plus some artistic license, to create the home belonging to the Brown family.

So while you Windsor Gardens does exist, the story isn’t based on the real life location – and there’s no number 32…

Scroll down to discover the location of 32 Windsor Gardens in the Paddington movies

Head into central London too, for Selfridges, where Bond bought the original bear which inspired the stories – and for those who’ve read the books, bears a distinct resemblance to the fictional Barkridges department store in London.

Regent’s Park was the site of another of Paddington’s mishaps from the stories, accidentally disrupting a performance in the open air theatre.

Image showing a graphic of London's iconic sights and the words 'click to read my quick start guide to London, all the essentials you need to know before a visit to London with kids' linking to my blog post guide to London with kids

Locations from the Paddington movies

The closest you can come to Windsor Gardens is Chalcot Crescent in Primrose Hill, where the Browns live in the films.

The Serpentine Lake in nearby Hyde Park was one of the movie Mrs Brown’s favourite swimming locations.

Not far from Paddington station, Little Venice was an area author Michael Bond knew well – and the canal towpath might look familiar from Paddington 2, where everyone’s favourite bear and his four-legged friend carry out a high-speed chase.

Or head to the  Natural History Museum in South Kensington, where the first film’s dramatic climax sees Paddington escaping from fiendish taxidermist Nicole Kidman.

Find one of the oldest Paddington Bears

The first official Paddington Bear toy was made in the UK in 1972, and while the earliest ones are now collector’s items, you can still see one special vintage bear on a trip to London.

One of the original-style Paddington Bears , dating from 1980, has been a favourite on display at the V&A’s Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green over the years.

The museum is currently closed and due to reopen in 2023 as the Young V&A , with more exhibits on display and new exhibitions, including the stories behind favourite characters like Paddington.

The much-loved Paddington Bear, with the safety pin still firmly in his hat, is also expected to return.

Please look after this bear: where to buy Paddington souvenirs

If you just want a Paddington of your own, there’s no need to venture to Darkest Peru, with plenty of places to find the pawfect souvenir.

There are Paddington souvenirs galore as well as a wide range of cuddly creations if you’re wondering where to buy Paddington Bear in London.

Paddington station itself is home to the only shop in the world exclusively dedicated to the famous bear , and you’ll find exclusive gifts here.

If you’re visiting Barkridges, aka Selfridges , there’s a wide range of toys and bears to be found.

And London’s most famous toy shop, Hamley’s on Regent’s Street, has its own impressive collection of bears plus plenty of Paddington-themed products – you can even get a luggage tag reading ‘Please look after this bear’.

You can also find the books in most good London bookstores too, along with Paddington’s Guide to London . If you don’t fancy carrying all 15 books around all day, or want to re-read the stories before you visit, check out this great box set from Amazon .

Paddington Bear is a children's icon that originated here in London many decades ago. Learn more about the history of Paddington Bear, the charity trail that was set up in the bear's name to raise money for children, and our favorite Paddington Bear tour on offer! 

Who is Paddington Bear?

  • Paddington Bear Trail in London

Paddington Bear Tours

Created in 1956, Paddington Bear is one of London’s most beloved children’s literature characters. He has featured in more than twenty books – written by his creator, Michael Bond – and has been the star of many of his own films, including one out just this year. He is known to children and adults the world over, his stories have been translated into 30 languages and selling more than 30million copies throughout the globe.

Paddington Bear, we are told, comes from Peru! He travelled here with his old hat, suitcase and duffle coat. He was discovered by a London family, the Browns, sitting on his suitcase inside Paddington Station. A note was attached to his coat which read, “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” So the Browns adopted Paddington, naming him after the station they found him! Padding Bear is able to speak and he very quickly informs his new family that his favourite food is marmalade – a food he has been directly associated with since his original creation, even appearing in British television adverts.

Paddington Bear Trail

Up until the end of December 2014, London played host to the Paddington Trail – a city-wide art project featuring 50 statues of Paddington himself. Each statue was created by designers, celebrities and artists and have been placed in the places throughout London that Paddington has said are his favourite. 

When the statues of Paddington were removed from the streets of London, their lives were not over! Christie’s hosted an auction of the statues. All the proceeds were then donated to charity – particularly the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). 

If you're a fan of Paddington Bear or just want to learn more about the phenomenon behind the books, then take a Paddington Bear Tour with Brit Movie Tours!

Paddington Bear Trail

Did you know there’s a little Paddington Bear statue trail in London Paddington? It’s not a brand new one, I think it was first put up in 2018, but we’d never done it before. You can pick up “The Pawprint Trail” map from the Paddington Bear shop at London Paddington train station – just ask for it at the shop counter. The first statue is inside the shop.

paddington walking tour map

We didn’t do the actual pawprint trail – we followed our own route to find the statues, marked as bears on the map.

paddington walking tour map

There are 3 to find, here is a photo of our route.

paddington walking tour map

It’s a pleasant little walk, especially along Merchant Square – with so many eateries along the canal, and also GoBoat London .

paddington walking tour map

There are fountains, which is useful to know for hot days. And a big screen with deckchairs, showing Wimbledon when we visited.

Paddington is just 20 minutes on the fast train from Slough, and an adult return is £11. We were there and back home for dinner really quick. A fun mini adventure.

The adventure continues into Paddington Central , then Little Venice, maybe for elevenses at the Waterside Cafe, the Puppet Theatre Barge and the Waterbus past ZSL London Zoo to Camden. [Please note that this Paddington is having a little TLC and a new furry coat, he'll he back in November 2022.]

To find Brick Bear take Adventure Two – Boating, Bears and Bridges - along the canal to Paddington Basin and Merchant Square . Watch the incredible bridges in action on Wednesdays and Fridays at noon and Saturdays at 2pm. You can even rent a GoBoat , paddleboard or a canoe. Try out the world's first water maze to cool you down or stretch out on London’s first floating pocket park .

Adventure Three, Ping Pong, Ponies and Peter Pan, includes the beautiful Norfolk Square Gardens where you'll find Paddingtonscape in the summer (when he’s not hibernating at the Hilton London Paddington), trying his paws at chess. Check out horse-riding at nearby Hyde Park Stables or continue to Hyde Park five minutes' away. Explore the Serpentine Gallery, meet Peter Pan and jump aboard the pirate ship at the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Playground.
