How to get around Bayswater
It’s easy to travel around London from Bayswater as there are lots of tube stations in the area! If you travel on the Central Line from Queensway Tube Station, you can get straight to Oxford Circus for shopping on Oxford Street in 10 minutes, and travel to St Paul’s to visit breathtaking St Paul’s Cathedral in around 17 minutes. Tubes on the Circle and District lines that stop at Bayswater Tube Station will take you direct to Notting Hill Gate in 2 minutes and Westminster (where you will find Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament) in just under 15 minutes. You could also use Royal Oak and Lancaster Gate tube stations, or Paddington Tube Station in neighbouring Paddington.
There’s plenty of parking available in Bayswater too! You can choose between the NCP underground car park just off of Queensway, the multi storey NCP car park in Porchester Terrace North (reached via Bayswater Road) and the NCP surface car park in Kensington Palace Gardens, just off of Bayswater Road.
If you prefer taxi’s to other forms of public transport, you’ll find taxi ranks dotted all over Bayswater. The most central taxi rank you’ll find is just outside Whiteleys Shopping Centre on Queensway.
Bayswater On Foot
One of the really great things about Bayswater is its proximity to some of the most attraction filled areas of London. Bring a pair of comfortable shoes with you and you can walk from Queensway in the heart of Bayswater to chic Notting Hill’s Portobello Road Market in around 20 minutes. You will find beautiful Kensington Palace in Kensington just under 10 minutes walk away, and the fantastic range of shops on Kensington High Street are just 5 minutes walk from here. If you want more shops, you should head to Mayfair, where you can shop till you drop on Oxford Street in around 25 minutes. When you fancy a day trip to places in the U.K like Bath or Bristol, you should walk the 10 minutes to Paddington Train Station!
