Located between Hyde Park, Paddington Station and Queensway, marking the start of the famous Notting Hill, Bayswater is a rather popular and extremely central area.
Many tourists and students live or stay in this area, as they are attracted by the affordable prices of the hotels and housing, the access to three tube lines (Central Line at Queensway and District/ Central at Bayswater), as well as many restaurants and cafés on Queensway, the bustling high street. On top of all this, there is a cinema and a famous shopping centre.
Although Bayswater isn’t extremely idyllic, it is an affordable option located on the other side of the major junction at Edgware with easy access to Hyde Park, the City, Soho – basically all the major office areas in London.
As such, Bayswater is a perfect area for individuals and couples looking to live in a very central area with easy access to most London places.
In terms of housing, there are many elegant Victorian buildings near Lancaster Gate, as well as slightly more modern buildings as you get towards Hyde Park. Costing at least between £1,800 and £2,500 per month for a two-bedroom apartment.
