There, you will find excellent restaurants, as well as the possibility to stroll along the water and admire the boats.
A leisurely walk or quick bus ride will bring you to Hyde Park, for an additional dose of nature. If you would like to indulge in a little shopping, nearby areas like Bayswater or Marylebone are perfect. As for restaurants, they are quite numerous all around, but the best Middle Eastern cuisine is probably found on Edgware Road, while Queensway also boasts great Chinese or Indian establishments.
The history goes back to the 19th Century
London Paddington history goes back to the 19th century, since it first served as the temporary final stop on the Great Western Railway in 1838. Construction of most of what is still visible today in the station dates from 1854 and was the work of Brunel and his associate Wyatt, while the first Underground services started in 1863, on the Metropolitan Railway.
New lines were created and extended over the decades, creating a comprehensive network that would eventually include the four Tube lines in service today, i.e. the Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City, Bakerloo and Circle. As for the platforms, new ones were constructed in 1885, 1893 and 1916.
Various improvement and restoration projects were carried out since then, including the addition of a roof span, the extension of some platforms and the concourse, as well as the reconstruction of the footbridge.
In 1998, the Heathrow Express line was created, offering non-stop services to and from the airport. While the transport hub was created and upgraded during the centuries, accommodation was also developed in the neighborhood, from the most prestigious hotels to bed and breakfast, so that visitors could settle in the area for the duration of their stay in the English capital.
