Events in Paddington During October 2014

Paddington is a district within the City of Westminster in central London, located close to Hyde Park and the various tourist attractions of the city. The area has three important landmarks, which are Paddington Station, St. Mary’s Hospital and Paddington Green Police Station. The area is undergoing a lot of development work as a major project called Paddington Waterside is under progress for regenerating former railway and canal land. The area of Paddington is one of the most preferred places where visitors to the city wish to stay as it is located strategically near most places of interest, particularly Hyde Park and the West End. There are plenty of places to stay in Paddington ranging from the most expensive 5 star hotels to the cheapest bed & breakfast hotels and travel inns.
