Paddington Station
Forever synonymous with the lovable Paddington Bear—the star of Michael Bond’s iconic children’s books—Paddington Station is one of London’s most famous train stations. Located in west London, the busy station serves both National Rail and London Underground trains, and offers high-speed rail links to London Heathrow International Airport.

The Basics
The grand, Victorian-era building was designed by the great civil engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Paddington Station is a key stop on Paddington Bear tours of London, during which fans can snap photo with Marcus Cornish’s Paddington Bear statue or shop for official toys and merchandise at the Paddington Bear shop. Hop-on hop-off bus tours service the station, in addition to tours that delve into the history of London’s tube network.

  • Public restrooms with baby changing facilities are available at a small charge.
  • Paddington has an information center to help visitors with travel plans.

How to Get There
Paddington Station is located in Paddington, west London, and is served by National Rail, London Underground (Hammersmith and City, Bakerloo, District, and Circle lines) and Heathrow Express trains. There is a taxi rank by Platform 1, behind which you’ll find local bus stops with routes that pass through central London.

When to Get There
The station and its ticket office are open 24 hours a day. Opening hours for facilities such as shops and restaurants vary. Paddington Station is at its busiest during weekday rush hours, which span the hours between 7am and 9am, and 4pm and 6pm.
 
There’s More to Paddington than Paddington

Paddington Bear is not the sole fictional figure associated with Paddington Station. The station has also appeared in the Sherlock Holmes’ novel The Hound of the Baskervilles; Agatha Christie’s mystery novel 4.50 from Paddington; and in the movies Layer Cake and the Bank Job. The Sherlock Holmes Museum, located at the exact address of the fictional detective, is only a 20-minute walk from the station.
