A taxi driver's guide to London Paddington

Most of us think of a Paddington taxi and our minds leap to a marmalade scoffing bear, rolling around in the back of a black cab. But at Addison Lee, we like to imagine even bears prefer a bit of refinement from time to time. Our luxury minicabs are comfortable, reliable and desirable; as well as being up to 30% cheaper than most black taxis. So when you decide it’s time for a little explore, remember – there’s so much more to this corner of Westminster, and you don’t even have to spend a fortune to see it all. Book through our app or website and let the adventure begin. So where to start? With the arcadian plains of Hyde Park and Queensway’s immutable buzz both just a stone’s throw away, you’re really spoilt for choice. But don’t be daunted – this bright carousel of shopping, eating out and relaxing al fresco has something for everyone. From high street heroes to couture boutiques and local markets, Paddington is the jewel of West London. When the iconic British architect Isambard Kingdom Brunel designed and built the magnificent Paddington train station in 1854, he intended it as a gateway to the United States. And while that may have ultimately proven beyond him, it’s worth mentioning that 150 years and well over £100m of refurbishments later and you can now get the train to Heathrow airport in just 15 minutes. Also home to the Bakerloo, Hammersmith & City as well as the Circle & District lines. This truly is one of London’s most important travel centres. Tired of all the hubbub? Follow our Paddington taxi driver’s guide into the unrivalled tranquility of London’s kept secret – Little Venice. There’s really no better spot to grab lunch in the sunshine. Bliss.
