Bayswater lies just north of Hyde Park in the City of Westminster, with Paddington train station to the east and Notting Hill to the west. The area is primarily characterised by its residential Victorian properties, which are home to a number of prominent Britons, including former Prime Minister Tony Blair, fashion designer Stella McCartney and actress Keira Knightly. Bayswater’s history as an inhabited part of London reaches back at least a millennia and in recent decades it has become one of the more cosmopolitan areas of the city. British, American, Brazilian, Arab and Greek influences are notable in the area which, as a result, has a very varied array of restaurants accompanying its traditional pubs and stylish bars. With both Regent’s Park and Hyde Park so close by, residents are spoilt for choice when it comes to places to relax in the great outdoors, as they are indeed for much else in this area.
