Location review: Paddington and Marble Arch London
“Paddington Bear” is the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Paddington. However, the beloved bear which was revered in our childhood is not the only thing that characterises Paddington. The area is home to one of the largest stations in London (Paddington station) and provides a hub for commuter services to the West of England (Slough, Maidenhead and Reading), as well to central London via the underground network.
If you wish to sample the beauty that Paddington has on offer, than a trip to Kensington Gardens is well worthwhile. Whilst there, you can enjoy the formal avenues of magnificent trees and ornamental flower beds. Within close proximity to Kensington Gardens is Hyde Park, which provided the setting for the 2012 London Olympics triathlon.
To the south east of Paddington lies Marble Arch, a monument which dates back to 1828. Marble Arch, was originally created as a gateway to Buckingham Palace. Today, it lies in the traffic island at the junction of Oxford Street, Park Lane, and Edgware Road. Within the surrounding area, there is a rich Middle Eastern culture which is optimised by the local restaurants and shops on Edgware Road. Oxford Street, which is referred to as the “mecca for shopaholics”, is also close by and is home to over 300 stores. For those that wish to explore other parts of the city, Marble Arch tube station provides a regular service to the east and west of London via the central line.
