Marmalade Messiness

This Summer, join Paddington for a unique adventure at Dalkeith Country Park.  Mrs Bird has brought Paddington, and his friend Pigeonton to Dalkeith Palace to show them where the best marmalade is made. Her old friend from school is the Palace Cook and has promised to give Mrs Bird a tour of the Palace kitchens. However, things have gone awry. Mrs Bird can’t seem to find Paddington in the Palace grounds and desperately needs your help to find him!
