There are two separate stations at the Paddington Underground Station serving as two sub-surface parts that are not directly linked. The deep level station to the south of the main line station is served by the Bakerloo, Circle and District lines that have a combined sub-surface and the sub surface station to the north is served by the Hammersmith & City and Circle lines. Circle line services follow a spiral route and go through both of the sub-surface stations. As such, Paddington Underground Station is served by four London Underground lines through these two separate stations. Commuters have to take a short walk to Lancaster Gate tube station if they are heading to the West End or the City, because Paddington is not served by the Central Line.
The Circle Line trains run in a spiral from Hammersmith via Ladbroke Grove to the Bishops Road platforms at Paddington, then on to Edgware Road, Kings Cross, Tower Hill, Victoria, High Street Kensington and back to Edgware Road via the Praed Street platforms at Paddington. As such, eastbound trains from the District and Circle Line platforms all terminate at Edgware Road, the next station.
The Circle and District Line platforms at Paddington Underground Station are crucial platforms that serve both these lines. There are many important locations of London near the exit of these platforms and as such many hotels near Circle and District line platforms are available.
