Bayswater Tube Station

Visitors to London benefit from a fantastic local transport system, connecting you to all the sights which truly matter during your stay. While visiting us you’re within easy reach of Bayswater Tube Station, and from there, can connect to both the Circle and District lines for fast, convenient travel throughout the city. Whatever you’re looking for, these four top destinations can be reached by Tube – giving you lots to see and do…

Embankment

One of the busiest stations in London, and for a reason – hopping off the Tube at Embankment gets you closer to a wide variety of fantastic local attractions, most prominently the London Eye, which is situated on the other side of the River Thames.

Originally built to mark the commemoration of the new millennium, the London Eye has since developed a major following as a unique way to see the city from above, making it a must-visit for guests at the Park Grand London Paddington.

London Dungeon, one of the city’s foremost tourist attractions, is also close at hand – with interactive exhibits which help bring London’s history to life in vivid detail. From here, you can easily walk to Westminster, passing the Battle of Britain monument which pays tribute to those who fought at this famed battle during the Second World War.

Baker Street

The main reason why Baker Street is so famous is its place in British literary history, as the home of fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Getting off the Tube at this stop will allow you to visit the residence which the character was said to inhabit, a fun way to connect with the tales and mythology of London while staying at the Park Grand London Paddington. While 221B Baker Street didn’t exist when Arthur Conan Doyle wrote the Sherlock Holmes stories, it certainly does now – in the form of the official Sherlock Holmes Museum.

Westminster

Getting the Tube direct to Westminster will position you close to the Palace of Westminster, now home to the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Westminster also contains Westminster Abbey, which has hosted every coronation of an English monarch since 1066. It has also played host to plenty of Royal weddings, among them the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011. Westminster regularly hosts protests as it is so close to parliament – so this is an area where there is always lots going on.

South Kensington

One of London’s most affluent and sought-after areas, South Kensington includes not only opportunities for great shopping and dining, but a number of the city’s best museums – including the V&A, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum. This part of London is known for being stylish – and as a place where visitors can find great style of their own. From boutiques to cafes, no matter what you’re looking for it’s never far away on the Tube.
