Things to Do in Paddington. It's 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.
Pack your marmalade sandwiches, put on your trusty bush hat and head over to Hyde Park to explore.
A short bus ride away - or a 25-minute walk if you're feeling adventurous - you'll find Portobello Market, one of the most renowned attractions of London. Boasting more than 150 years of history, plenty of opportunity to catch some street entertainment and a wealth of stalls and shops numbering well into the 2000s, this truly is the place to be on a Saturday morning.
West London was once famously the stomping ground of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's super sleuth Sherlock Holmes, and those wanting to emulate the character or simply find out a little more about him are advised to head to 221B Baker Street where you'll find the Sherlock Museum. This unique institution sports a rather incredible collection of goodies including paraphernalia associated with the famed detective, while the first floor study is maintained in the fashion that, we're assured, would have been preferred had Mr Holmes been alive today.
