Paddington forms part of the City of Westminster and while it is known for Paddington Station, St Mary's Hospital and Paddington Green Police Station, you'll also find the Grand Union Canal, which runs from London to Birmingham.
Paddington Basin boasts an impressive waterside development, which has transformed the area, with new state of the art flats topping the skyline of Westminster.
If you have a particular type of property in mind, our Paddington estate agents will find just what you’re looking for. Large homes are available in Connaught Square, while spacious flats abound in Hyde Park Square and The Lancasters. Alternatively, for smaller, terraced properties, you should consider the streets that run from Sussex Gardens to Praed Street. Meanwhile, for more modern homes, the development at Paddington Waterside is ideal.
Paddington Waterside is a 20-year mixed-use regeneration scheme covering 80 acres, a site the size of Soho. Already new offices and over 1,100 new flats have been built, with another 1,200 due to be built over the next five years. Part of Paddington Waterside, Merchant Square, overlooking the canal basin, is a development of six separate buildings around a new public square.
1 Merchant Square will be launched soon. This 41-storey block is the tallest in Westminster and will have 222 flats, a 90-room hotel and a top floor restaurant.
