Summer is fast approaching, and there’s plenty to bring you to Paddington! Some of the best pop up events are right on our doorstep:
Extreme Zip Line: Jump on this 60m zip line in Merchant’s Square, and try not to get wet as you zoom over the fountains! The zip line is the first event of Merchant Square’s Summer of Fun, and is completely free.
22nd – 23rd May
Zorbing: Another event in Merchant Square’s Summer of Fun, why not try zorbing over the water? Each zorb – a clear, plastic sphere, rather like a hamster ball – fits up to two people; and again, there’s no charge.
19th – 20th June
High Ropes: Up to ten people at a time can brave an exhilarating high ropes course, four metres off the ground, in Merchant Square. You’ve guessed it – this is also free!
14th – 15th August
Paddington Covers – Free Music Festival Fridays: Head down to Norfolk Square Gardens for some buzzing summer festivities. With live music tribute acts, children’s entertainers and delicious street food, who says you can’t have the festival experience in the middle of London?
Friday 28th June, Friday 26th July, Friday 30th August; midday – 7pm
Gaming – head-to-head: Challenge your friends to Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros or Wii Sport on London’s biggest screen in Merchant’s Square.
20th May – 12th September, except Wimbledon (1st – 14th July)
Wimbledon: Join other tennis fans anxiously watching Wimbledon, live on a big screen in Merchant Square. You can even play tennis yourself on the screen’s games console.
1st – 14th July
Screen in the Square: Watch some of the year’s top films on the big screen in Merchant’s Square – from Mary Poppins Returns to the front-runner of this year’s Oscars, Bohemian Rhapsody.

Yoga: Start the day in a mindful way by joining a free yoga session in the peaceful greenery of Norfolk Square Gardens.

With all of this just a stone’s throw away, book now to stay with us at the Indigo Paddington and let the summer fun commence!
