“Nice area to live in”

Paddington Waterside
Ranked #534 of 1,851 things to do in London
Attraction details

Paddington under went a huge regeneration in the last decades and if further has huge projects that will transform it massively.

The Paddington waterside has been done beautifully too, although people living in the barges do not contribute towards it's cleaning, no wonder the water can be covered completely at certain times of the year.

Lots of blocks of flats and offices have been build around, it is surely being changed as we speak.

I like taking the walk from the Paddington station towards Little Venice, along the canal through this lovely area. It gives a bit different perspective of the city...

Looking for something to do that is free, relaxing and different? Just outside of Paddington station, take a walk along the canal to see houseboats, lovely buildings & homes, and bridges. There are sections along the canal with benches to sit & enjoy the view. Do as much or as little as you like.

Walking alongside the river at the Paddington Waterside was a pretty sight, quiet and the folk on the Houseboats were accommodating in greeting you and allowing you to take photos. Some houseboats were specifically decorated enticing you to comment on and take photos of. We an excellent stroll the next morning after a long flight

We were staying in a Paddington hotel and this provided us with the opportunity to become quite familiar with the Paddington area.
Early one evening, we took a pleasant stroll along the Paddington Waterside. To access the area, we just needed to walk through Paddington Railway Station and out through the side entrance, adjacent to the taxi rank and we then followed the path.
It was amazing to find such a relatively peaceful area, within an inner London suburb. There were several cafes and bars located along the canal’s edge. The narrow canal boats moored along the side of the canal were the most interesting features for us. We walked along to Little Venice and then turned around and headed back to our hotel.
A word of warning is required however. The pedestrian path along the edge of the canal is also used as a bike track by a number of cyclists. A number of the cyclists, who we saw, appeared to have scant regard for pedestrians. Therefore, if you choose to take a walk through this nice area, do watch out for cyclists, as they can pose something of a danger for pedestrians.
