West’s most multifaceted district, Bayswater is a pleasing mix of once grand mansions, architecturally significant palaces and great places to eat and drink. It is an extremely convenient location, close to trendy Notting Hill and High Street Kensington, and will make your adventures around London easy to plan. Queensway is Bayswater’s backbone and is one big, noisy conservation area. The street is full of good Middle Eastern cafes and Chinese restaurants. To the south, just opposite the memorabilia-filled Diana café in Bayswater Road lies Kensington Gardens and the excellent playground built to the memory of the late princess of Wales.
