More About Paddington
Westminster features countless districts, some of which are definitely famous, but arguably none are more famous than Paddington. The once metropolitan borough plays home some of the capital’s most decorated landmarks, these include Paddington Railway Station (which was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel), Paddington Green Police Station (the highest level security police station in the UK) and St. Mary’s Hospital. However, Paddington isn’t an area that rests solely on its history, as there are regeneration plans in place under the name of Paddington Waterside. This should see the former railway canal be regenerated under a new development. Paddington as an area also holds a special place in literary and film history as well. Many authors and filmmakers have an affinity for the area, as it features in such classics including A Spurious Brood, Paddington Bear, The Blue Lamp, and Never Let Go. Plenty of famous individuals have hail from the area too, including Alan Turning, Joe Cole, Joan Collins, Les Ferdinand, Elvis Costello, Seal, David Suchet, Keifer Sutherland, and Emma Thomson. When thinking about Paddington, odds are you’ll be left wondering what there isn’t to love about it.
