Paddington is currently being heavily rejuvenated

Paddington is a central London area within the City of Westminster. It used to be a metropolitan borough but became part of its current governance in 1965. Paddington boasts three major landmarks: Paddington Station, St Mary’s Hospital and Paddington Green Police Station. The area is currently being regenerated, with many new developments springing up alongside the railway and canal, rejuvenating disused buildings and wasteland.

Doing Business in Paddington

Many businesses in Paddington historically were located there due to their proximity to the canal and the railways, which were intrinsic to any industry. These days, there is less of an allegiance to any particular industry, businesses choosing, instead, to locate in the area due to its relatively reasonable commercial rents, and proximity to Central London.

Living in Paddington

Living in Paddington is relatively low-key compared to the rest of London. There is still a large amount of social housing provided. That doesn’t mean that private housing is cheap, indeed a house fetches up to £2.5million (source, Foxtons), but cheaper flats can be purchased for the relatively low price of just over £300,000.
