Paddington, having settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, has become popular in his community, offering people emotional support in various ways. To purchase a unique pop-up book of London in Samuel Gruber’s antique shop for his aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, Paddington performs several odd jobs and saves his wages, but the book is stolen.
Paddington gives chase, but the thief escapes, and Paddington is framed and arrested. Although Gruber and the Browns do not believe that Paddington stole the book, with no evidence that the thief even existed, Paddington is convicted and sent to prison. The thief returns home and is revealed to be Phoenix Buchanan, an egotistical ex-actor who lives near the Browns.

Buchanan uses the book to locate a series of clues within London’s famous landmarks, which he believes will unveil the location of a secret treasure. During their efforts to prove Paddington’s innocence, the Browns encounter a fortune teller who informs them that the book leads to the hidden fortune of the original author.
Paddington find a secret attic where Buchanan’s various costumes are stashed, including the costume of the thief. Buchanan returns home and they are forced to leave. Meanwhile, the Browns miss a prison visit with Paddington, causing him to believe that they have forgotten about him.
Mary tries to rescue Paddington but struggles to open the locked carriage; she is soon assisted by Knuckles and the other inmates, who have had a change of heart and decide to help Paddington as promised. Eventually, Henry knocks out Buchanan just as he tries to access the so-called treasure, and Buchanan is arrested.
During the credits, Knuckles, Phibs, and Spoon are pardoned. Buchanan is found guilty and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Six months later, he is shown to be putting his experience as a performer to further use, hosting shows for the inmates and providing entertainment throughout the building.
