A Local’s Guide to London Paddington

Paddington offers endless attractions, such as the floating Puppet Theatre Barge.


Trendy pop-up restaurant Pergola is a popular choice among Londoners. This street food hub is the go-to spot with a fairy-lit rooftop and a sizeable alfresco garden made for summer evenings. With two bars and four rotating restaurant vendors, this place is a haven for everybody, whether you’re looking for a laid-back weekend, after-work drinks, or fancy letting loose and dancing the night away.


Head over to Merchant Square and find Paddington’s very own street food market. Crave runs twice weekly, while Kerb takes place at Sheldon Square every month. If you’re after a more sophisticated dining experience, award-winning seafood restaurant The Summerhouse is a waterside treasure that’s not to be missed. Located on the Grand Union Canal at Little Venice, this eatery features a delicious menu of fresh seafood and posh fish and chips.


While you’re here, explore the surrounding areas and take a 10-minute ride to the alluring streets of Mayfair.
