Paddington is an area of the City of Westminster in Central London and is located in the postal district W2. It was formerly a metropolitan borough of itself, but was integrated with Westminster and Greater London in 1965. Historically a part of Middlesex, the earliest extant reference to Padington is in the year 1056. Three important landmarks of the district are Paddington station, designed by the celebrated engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel and opened in 1847; St Mary’s Hospital and Paddington Green police station. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Paddington area.
London Paddington station, also known as London Paddington, or just simply Paddington, is a major National Rail and London Underground station complex in the Paddington area near central London. The site is an historic one, having served as the London terminus of the Great Western Railway and its successors since 1838. Much of the current mainline station dates back to 1854, and was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The site was first served by Underground trains in 1863, and was the original western terminus of the Metropolitan Railway, the world’s first underground railway. The nearest London Underground stations are Edgware Road and Paddington.
Despite its historic nature, and the need to preserve many of its features, the complex has recently been modernised, and has added a new role as the terminus of the dedicated Heathrow Express service to Heathrow Airport. Paddington station also provides commuter services to the west of London (e.g. Slough, Maidenhead, Reading, Swindon) and main-line service to Oxford, Bristol, Bath, Taunton, Exeter, Plymouth, Cornwall and South Wales (including Cardiff and Swansea). There is also the Heathrow Express service to Heathrow Airport. In the station are statues of its designer Isambard Kingdom Brunel and the children’s fiction character Paddington Bear.
Paddington Basin is an area of Paddington, London named after the nearby canal basin. The junction of the Regent’s Canal and the Grand Junction Canal is close to this point but the basin itself is the terminus of the Paddington Arm of the Grand Junction Canal. It was opened in 1801. Paddington was chosen because of its position on the New Road which led to the east, providing for onward transport. In its heyday, the basin was a major trans-shipment facility, and a hive of activity.
A consortium in partnership with British Waterways began work in January 2000 by draining the basin. The basin is now the centre of a major redevelopment and is surrounded by modern buildings. It is the site of The Rolling Bridge, built in 2004. Marks & Spencer Head Office is now located here after moving from their Baker Street site in 2004. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Paddington Basin area.
Paddington Bear was discovered quite by chance in Paddington Station on the 13th of October 1958, and was subsequently featured in several books, most recently in 2008, written by Michael Bond. The polite bear from Darkest Peru, with his old bush hat, battered suitcase and marmalade sandwiches has become a classic English children’s literature icon. Read more…
