Bayswater, in Zone One and Westminster Borough - perhaps the most cosmopolitan of all the boroughs - borders the north of Hyde Park and the west of Oxford Street.
Bayswater is cosmopolitan, diverse yet elegant and includes the contrast of thriving bustling hub of Queensway. This variety means that everything you need is within walking distance and there are very few areas in London you can truly say that.
Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are literally at the end of the road, with more than 4,000 trees, a lake, a meadow, Concerts, the Serpentine, roller-blading and horse riding. This is London’s most visited and famous park. Kensington Gardens - planted with formal avenues of magnificent trees and ornamental flower beds. Also home to Kensington Palace, peaceful Italian Gardens, the Albert Memorial, Peter Pan statue and the Serpentine Gallery.
Shopping in the West End. Oxford Street with the famous Selfridges - which in 2010 beat Bloomingdale’s in New York to be named the best department store in the world !!
Queensway is the heart and soul of Bayswater – bustling and noisy it is a great experience with Whiteleys Shopping Centre which offers high street stores including Nine West, French Connection, Gap and Zara, as well WH Smiths and HMV. It originally opened in 1912 as a fashionable department store that sold everything from ‘a pin to an elephant’
Portobello Road Market is a healthy stroll away. Locals come here for an eclectic range of vintage fashion, handmade crafts, as well as ethically produced fashions and fruit and veg.
Housed in the elegant Porchester Centre and across the road, Courtneys leisure centre provides local residents with two pools, squash, 60 fitness classes, swimming lessons and a there’s a Spa with a fantastic reputation
London’s only permanent ice rink is on Queensway – the Queens Ice Rink is open every day
Queensway Market, two doors down from Queensway Tube station is an arcade with stalls stocking items rarely found in the chain stores.
Restauarants - Bayswater, Queensway, Westbourne Grove and Notting Hill have far too many restaurants all within walking distance - far too many to include in this overview. ( suggest using Time-Out, Open-Table, Zomato etc... to search the local area.
In addition there is a fantastic collection of ethnic cafes and bars.
