"Hotels in Bayswater, London"
The vibrant, diverse district of Bayswater has a cosmopolitan, almost suburban feel. Nestled in the west of London, to the north of Hyde Park and Kensington, but not as far out as Notting Hill, it has the advantages of being very close to town, and yet feeling inclusive rather than exclusive, in contrast to some of its neighbouring areas.
The heart of Bayswater is along two roads: Queensway and Westbourne Grove. Both have a wide range of different cuisines on offer, indicative of the different ethnic groupings who all find a home in Bayswater.
Bayswater is probably named after Baynard, an associate of William the Conqueror, who used the area to water his cattle after the Norman Conquest. This association cannot be clearly traced, but a 1653 parliamentary grant refers to a field near Paddington known as Baynards Watering.
On Queensway you will fine the Whiteleys shopping centre, which has large department and fashion stores, restaurants and bars, and even a bowling alley. Although somewhat overshadowed by the opening of the Westfield centre in Shepherds Bush, it still has a large range of shops and eateries, and is significantly closer to the centre of town.
To the north end of Bayswater, if you make your way under the Westway motorway, you will find Little Venice. Almost secret, and tucked away between the large, white Georgian terraces, lies a winding canal. On its edges you will find pubs and green spaces, and it can provide a relaxing way to spend an afternoon, when you are in no hurry to shop or see a major attraction.
On the other side, of course, is Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. These enormous, historic parks contain the main entrance to Buckingham Palace, the Albert Memorial, the Serpentine, and are well worth exploring for an afternoon or two. They are Londons green heart.
Bayswater has been home to many famous people, including Winston Churchill, Damon Albarn (of indie band Blur), and J.M. Barrie, who wrote Peter Pan.
Whilst in Bayswater you can visit St Sophias Cathedral, an Eastern Orthodox cathedral on Moscow Road, consecrated in February 1882. It was designed by John Oldrid Scott, who designed many churches in the late Victorian period, and was responsible for West Norwood Cemetery. During the Second World War, London became the home of the Greek government in exile, so St Sophia became the cathedral of the Greek Nation.
Bayswater is served by both Bayswater and Queensway tube stations, and is within walking distance of Paddington, if you need access to the overground. Whilst mainly a residential area, and one without the famous attractions of Kensington and Chelsea or the West End, Bayswater is a quiet and beautiful area, diverse, colourful, and inclusive that is close to all that the city has to offer, and yet is relatively unaffected by the bustle all around it.
In Bayswater, you are close to parks, restaurants, and a broader range of life than is on offer in some of Londons districts. It has been home to Tony Blair, Sting, Keira Knightley, and Irfan Orga.
