Paddington itself is fairly dull, and would benefit from shifting away from catering to the tourists

The street and immediate area is closer to upmarket, but there is a housing estate very close by which can contribute to some rowdiness. The area is suitable for children, but pets that require regular exercise like dogs, would probably benefit from a more rural location. Paddington itself is fairly dull, and would benefit from shifting away from catering to the tourists arriving at the station (with poor chain restaurants and budget hotels). That said, the easy access to a wide range of other areas makes it an ideal base.

Transport

Multiple stations are within a 10 minute walk: Paddington, Lancaster Gate, Queensway, Bayswater etc. Lancaster Gate is the closest and most reliable transport link as there is access to the central line here. Paddington offers access to the bakerloo, circle, district and Hammersmith and city lines. The circle line is the best way for me to travel to work but is so unreliable in the morning that I’ve given up on it.

Community

Our street is a Mews Street made up of a range of renters and owners of all ages and household compositions. The street itself often used as a thoroughfare for pedestrians, which can be frustrating - especially on Friday and Saturday nights when this is loud and drunk passerby’s. Fortunately, bollards at the end of the street mean that cars can not pass through, so we don’t have much traffic noise. Rubbish collections are very regular at twice a week, but recycling collection is once a week and somewhat unreliable. Fortunately there is a waste centre at the top of the road.

Amenities

The area of Paddington is close to multiple other areas that provide an excellent range of amenities. Notting Hill is a 25 minute walk, whilst the shops of Westbourne grove are just a 5-10 minute walk away. Kensington gardens and Hyde park are also close by at a 10 min or so walk away. Westbourne grove and Notting Hill offer a selection of restaurants and pubs; but there is a distinct lack of bars and high quality independent restaurants in the Paddington area. The Cleveland arms is a lovely pub and restaurant , but is the only one in the area. Queensway previously housed whitelys shopping centre, which whilst had only a limited selection, was helpful to have close by. This has now been closed for a refurb, but Queensway does still offer some great Cantonese restaurants and a few useful chain stores like boots and Superdrug. There’s a large Waitrose and planet organic on Westbourne grove, plus a Sainsbury’s local and Tesco express on nearby Queensway.

I love the ease of access to transport and how I have delicious restaurants on the foot of my door.

I love the ease of access to transport and how I have delicious restaurants on the foot of my door. I dislike the constant beray traffic. the atmosphere is friendly and trendy, I suppose the overarching theme would be upmarket however this isn't overbearing. I believe the area to be very safe, I would feel happy to bring children and pets here, no concerns.

Transport

Transport links are generally quite good, it helps to be so close to Paddington railway station also. There are a good number of cyclists on the road also. Roads are wide and generally feel safe when cycling. Buses are fairly reliable and there are a few local tube stations all within walking distance.

Community

Street parking is available through the local council at a price. this is not ideal but i suppose it is to be suspected. Traffic can get very busy on the main roads. Especially at peak times and the weekend, but alas this is London. Bin collection is fairly consistent however it is often a mess by the time it is collected. There are often groups of young men hanging around streets.

Amenities

Truly a fantastic location to live. Architecture is astounding, houses and buildings are absolutely beautiful. The is the ease of access to local amenities, a wide array of shops, both food, and retail. An absolutely mouth-watering selection of eateries and restaurants.

The good point is the proximity with the city center

Transport

The connection is good aas you have 2 stations nearby + Paddington station. Plus the 18 night bus. I use it to go to work hence why I live in the area

Community

The good point is the proximity with the city center and for me personally the bus. Area very quiet in the week, busy on weekends with little Venice nearby. Mostly families

Amenities

To be honest I find the area a little bit boring. Some Nice pubs but they close very early and don't have much activities. The good point is that Paddington Square is near but it closes early as well

The only downsides to living here is that the A40 highway is going right nearby so sometimes there is a lot of traffic
