Paddington Hotels - London

Mini guide to Paddington

     

Although not a major tourist hub, the Paddington area is nevertheless very convenient, with adjacent areas like Queensway and Bayswater offering many shopping opportunities and restaurants, as well as good accommodation.

Paddington Station, where Paddington Bear got his name, was built as the London terminal of the Great Western Railway, which ran to Bristol. Inside the station, the structure of the arched interior is an impressive example of Victorian engineering. The station recently had a major overhaul and the new 'Lawn' area offers many shops and restaurants, as well as airline check-in desks for those using the Heathrow Express.

On the 3rd of September 1928, at St Mary's Hospital, Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin, which revolutionised medicine. Today, the Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum has reconstructed his original laboratory, with a video, exhibition and photographs of Fleming.

In nearby Queensway, you will find the Bayswater Road Art Exhibition, with over 250 artists and craftsmen displaying their own original works. At almost a mile long, it is the longest open-air art exhibition in the world and a great way to purchase some original art at studio prices.

In terms of transport, Paddington is well situated, as the Heathrow Express train arrives in Paddington. The station is one of the train hubs for London and services West England and South Wales. It is easy to catch a cab to nearby hotels or to elsewhere in London from here. Otherwise, Paddington is an interchange for the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City, and Bakerloo lines.
