The hotel is only a few minutes' walk from Paddington station to Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, Regent's Canal and the picturesque area of Little Venice with its colourful canal boats, swans, and Canadian Geese.
See the world-famous Thomas Heatherwick's Rolling Bridge and Paddington's Fan Bridge in action on Wednesdays and Fridays at midday.
Norfolk Square Gardens and Talbot Square Gardens are ideal picnic spots, with deck chairs, ping pong, and giant chess.
Take a canal boat from Little Venice to Camden, or test your balance and hire a paddle board.
Find a charming bronze statue of Paddington Bear under the clock on Platform 1, where the Brown family found him in the first book. There is also the world's only dedicated Paddington bear shop in the station, which is great for souvenirs and gifts.
