Welcome to The Bayswater/Westbourne area, a favored destination for those traveling to London with a superb location, good connections and some unique attractions. The area is a fashionable residential district of quiet Georgian squares, village style streets and mews, formerly stable alleys. Yet it's true appeal lies in the contrasting worlds that have developed here. You will find a conservative world of antiques shops and old inns, plus a young, lively world of exotic restaurants, artist's studios and boutiques.
Connections: Tube and bus connections in the Bayswater Area to the rest of London are excellent. With buses a good number to remember is 15, this will take you round the major tourist attractions at a much cheaper price than an official sight seeing tour! Paddington Station is virtually on the doorstep with a direct rail link, 'The Heathrow Express' arriving every 15 minutes from the airport.
