Suitable for short city breaks with great connections to the whole of London and beyond. From the Brunel Hotel in Paddington, it's only a 7 min. walk to Paddington Station. From here, via the tube network you are easily connected to the whole of London. Jump on the Bakerloo Line and you will get to Madame Tussauds and The Sherlock Holmes Museum in a few minutes. Stay on the tube and you will get to busy Oxford Street and famous Piccadilly Circus very quickly. Heathrow Express whisks you away from the Airport to the buzz of the city in just 15 min.
7 min walk away lies Hyde Park and its landmarks such as Kensington Gardens, Serpentine Lake and Gallery through the leafy streets of Bayswater. Little Venice is a place where Regent’s Canal and the Grand Union Canal meet in Maida Vale. At the beginning of May each year the banks of this charming area are transformed into Canal Cavalcade. What you can expect is narrow boats full of funky colours, market stalls and several street entertainers.
The area within Paddington where the Regent’s Canal joins with the Grand Union is called Little Venice. It is home to trendy eateries and a hippy village full of brightly coloured canal boats or perhaps pay a visit to charming Marylebone with its traditional English pubs and upmarket boutiques. If you are a fan of Middle Eastern cuisine make sure you pop into one of the many cafes on Edgware Road.
Not so far from Paddington is the peaceful residential area of Maida Vale and St John’s Wood. Here you can find the famous street of Abbey Road where the Beatles iconic album cover was photographed in 1969 which is a short walk to the home of cricket at Lord’s Cricket Ground. The mainline station at Paddington has been associated with the marmalade loving children’s book character “Paddington Bear “since 1958.
The team at The Brunel will be delighted to welcome you soon.
