Office space in Paddington, London

Paddington is an area in West London in the London Borough of Westminster and has been an important transport gateway since the 18th century. It sees some 61 million passengers pass through Paddington station every year and will be an important hub for the Crossrail service. The Paddington Waterside and Basin developments started in 1998 with the aim of regenerating former industrial land around the Grand Union Canal. Some areas are still being developed with the final stages due for completion in 2018, providing some 10,000,000 sq. ft. of prime office, retail and residential space.

There are several popular landmarks in the area, including the Grand Union Canal, the Fan Bridge and Paddington station which was designed and built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Paddington is the main rail gateway connecting London with the West and Southwest of England and Wales, and with the addition of the Heathrow Express, Heathrow International Airport is a rapid 15 minute journey away. With the station having recently been given a £65m facelift, Paddington is now a thriving business district and home to many corporate businesses like Visa Europe, Marks & Spencer, Vodafone and Nokia UK.
