Zone 1 - Bayswater, London

Bayswater is located in Central London, 1 zone on District and Hammersmith & Circle lines

It's a residential area well connected to major tourist attractions and town center. It represents one of the fascinating places to live in London.

Bayswater is surrounded by numerous green square spaces and bordered by  Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. It is London's most cosmopolitan area, with the detectable diversity of the local population.
 Around the area, mostly at Bayswater Tube Station, there are numerous ethnic cafes, restaurants, and shops that a simple tourist could think that there might be no real residents nearby. The area has attractive streets and garden squares lined with Victorian stucco terraces, mostly now subdivided into flats and boarding houses.

This location is convenient for business professionals who are pleased for jogging after work in Hyde Park. Tourists are fascinated about Bayswater as there are numerous serviced apartments, hotels, restaurants and pubs. Some of the notable personalities  as Winston Churchill, Tony Blair, Keira Knightley, and Sting lived in Bayswater. Guglielmo Marconi (the pioneer of wireless communication) lived at 71 Hereford Road between 1896 and 1897 with his mother upon arrival in England (marked by a Blue Plaque). Sting occupied a basement flat at 28A Leinster Square in the late seventies during the formative years of The Police. Trudie Styler, now his wife, lived in a basement flat two doors down.

Ricky Mallone has lived in Bayswater for 25 years and loves it. "The best thing about Bayswater is its location. Everything is within walking distance," says Ricky. Notting Hill is just a few miles down the road with some good shopping and cinemas. If it's a nice day you can wander into Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens and get lost amongst nature. Paddington train station is literally around the corner. So is Edgware Road with its markets, shops, and great restaurants.

Bayswater Tube Station opened on 1st October 1868 by the steam-operated Metropolitan Railway (now the Metropolitan Line). Today this station links two lines, District and Circle, which helps the travelers to save time on travel in Central London, South and East London. Usually, the station is overcrowded by tourists, professionals and students due to its location. Bayswater Station is convenient for tourists as it has a direct connection to Victoria Tube Station/Victoria Coach Station. Edgware Road is just a few minutes from Bayswater and those who are passionate about Arabic culture are welcome to take a ride. All must see tourists attractions across Thames River could be visited spontaneously using Bayswater Station.

Not far from our short term accommodations our guests could benefit from various shops, bars, cafes, and the enormous Whiteleys shopping center in Bayswater.

Bayswater is located in Central London and all it's close to the best tourist spots of the city.

From this location, you can plan interesting walks through the city.

We suggest you to visit the historical and renovated Paddington Station. Now, it's full of shops and it's also famous for the statue of Paddington Bear, the character of the homonym book for children.

After this visit, we suggest continuing your walk up to Paddington Basin and taking a break drinking and eating in one of the many restaurants along the canal. In particular, we suggest you to visit the Rolling Bridge, a type of curling movable bridge. It offers a magic of its own at midday every Friday.

From here you can start an original walk that it is not well know by tourists. Indeed, if you continue to walk through Regent's Canal, you can reach Camden Town. Or, you can visit the picturesque area of Little Venice. Or if you love to have the wind in your sails, you can book a canal and river cruise day tour.

For shopping lovers, we highly recommended a few hours of full immersion inside the shopping center Whiteleys.

For who travel with kids, we suggest visiting the Princess Diana Memorial Playground. In this place, there is a sensory trail, teepees, a beach around the pirate ship and various toys and play sculptures. The design has created an area where less able and able-bodied children can play together. The Science Museum is also one of the best places for the whole family. Here, you can catch a 3D movie, jump on a simulator, visit an exhibition, and encounter the past, present and future of technology in 7 floors of galleries!
