I took the tube to Paddington and walked down to Hyde Park via Bayswater. I have to say I didn't expect it to be all that nice around there. My impression had been that Paddington wasn't all that desirable, as central London locations go. It's pretty good looking, with some pleasant looking cafes and restaurants around. The little terraces tucked away down side streets look very appealing too. No doubt they aren't cheap, but I suspect not as expensive as some other central London locations.

Evening Standard

Once a parish and metropolitan borough stretching as far as West Kilburn, but now a compact, densely built-up commercial locality surrounding the station that bears its name
