Paddington Area Guide
Paddington Station was recently refurbished, with a new concourse designed by Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners. It incorporates a wonderful selection of shops and restaurants.
In 1998, the Paddington Waterside Partnership was established in order to coordinate the regeneration of the area between the Westway, Praed Street and Westbourne Terrace. This included developments on the goods yard site, now branded Paddington Central, and around the canal, now known as Paddington Basin.
Paddington station is the terminus for commuter services to the west of England and the Heathrow Express serves Heathrow Airport.
