One of the best things to do in London is to spend time getting to know one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the city. Bayswater, located in the City of Westminster, is one of London’s most cosmopolitan areas and offers the perfect combination of sightseeing, shopping, and dining. Here’s our roundup of the top five attractions in and around Bayswater to help you plan the perfect trip.

St Sophia’s Cathedral

The Bayswater area is home to a large Greek community, and one of the most impressive attractions to visit is the Greek Orthodox church of St Sophia. Located only a stone’s throw away from our premium hotel near Bayswater, it’s the oldest surviving Greek cathedral in London. You can admire the Byzantine Revival design of the building and the exquisite marble decorations inside. Additionally, you can explore the 18th-century archives of the city’s Greek community at the museum located in the church’s crypt.

Westbourne Grove

If you have an eye for design, you’ll find plenty of great architecture to admire in St Luke’s Mews in Westbourne Grove. Take in the view of its sherbet-coloured houses, and if you enjoy shopping, be sure to explore the charming boutiques scattered throughout the area. Later in the day, cool off with drinks at one of the city’s finest pubs in the area, or explore the amazing ethnic food options, ranging from mouthwatering Greek moussaka to exotic Malaysian cuisines.
