Bayswater Area Guide – Hotels and Attractions


What most people expect from a Bayswater area guide is a long list of hotels and attractions. This too is one such guide except it tells you some of the best places shop in Bayswater, few hotels and the secret of some amazing restaurants.

With Hyde Park to the north and Oxford Street to the west, staying in Bayswater means you have access to a range of hotels and some fancy shopping. Lovely gardens and parks are a key highlight of this area. It’s also one of the more sought after residential areas in Central London. Heathrow Airport is 15 minutes away from the Paddington Station here and from shopping to eating everything is at a stone’s throw away distance here.

Between Hyde Park and Bayswater, you’ll find plenty of hotels – beds and breakfasts, luxury, hostels and guest houses. You’ll also find some good facilities and rates at the four star hotels here. Grand Royal London Hyde Park is one such place that flaunts a strategic location, discounts, amenities and rates. There are packages that include complimentary breakfast, champagne, fruits amongst other things. There is an in house restaurant and bar facility and a loyalty programme for your frequent visits. Grand Royale is a place for travellers as well as businessmen to hold conferences.

The shopping scene in Bayswater is pretty popular too. Since the town caters to a residential population, you’ll find everything from camera batteries to garment shops in Bayswater. Visit Whiteleys Shopping Centre for the big brands and chic restaurants. Portobello Road Market isn’t very far and has a range of handicrafts and fashion items. Oxford Street is another place for high end shopping. Also visit Edgware Road and Queensway Market.

While a Bayswater area guide will show you listings of restaurants and bars, you don’t have to follow it to the T. Try out random restaurants, cafes and bars, order the strangest looking dishes off the menu and have the time of your life. Or, you could also have an English meal, some tea and loads of dessert and keep it simple.

Now that you know where to find hotels, where to eat and where to shop, hope you have an excellent stay at Bayswater town.
