A guide to Paddington in London from a commercial perspective. The guide is aimed at businesses looking for office space in Paddington or London in general.

A real game-changer...will be the introduction of the Elizabeth line at the end of 2018, which is going to make journey times to places like Bond Street or Canary Wharf very quick indeed.

Paddington: a commercial guide for businesses looking for office space in London
Ian Kitchener:

Paddington is one of London’s newest office locations, built around Paddington Station itself and Paddington Basin. It’s got strong communications from the station to the West Country and also Heathrow Airport. A real game-changer, like other parts of Central London, will be the introduction of the Elizabeth line at the end of 2018, which is going to make journey times to places like Bond Street or Canary Wharf very quick indeed.

At the end of the last century, Paddington had really become just a little bit seedy, with lots of little backpacker hotels and things like that. But it is much, much better now. And there has been huge development by the Basin. Today there are buildings built by people like British Lend, for example Four Kingdom Street, which provides pretty innovative office spaces available on all-inclusive terms, but where people are actually able to give branding to their own companies and reflect their identity.

My favorite spot in Paddington would have to be the Italian fountains in Kensington Garden Square and also the Mitre Pub on Craven Terrace.

About Paddington

Paddington Offices

Paddington is situated in London W2, approximately a mile to the west of Marble Arch at the west end of Oxford Street. It is the area immediately next to London Paddington Station, a short walk north of huge green spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.

The area is steeped in history and is close to chic residential areas including Maida Vale, Notting Hill & Bayswater.

Redevelopment of Paddington Basin since the turn of the millenium, with a mix of residential, retail and office space – constructed alongside the canal, attractively linked by towpaths and bridges – has helped to transform the area. Large scale office space in Paddington Basin has in attracted major corporate occupiers: Marks & Spencer moved their Head Office to Paddington Basin from Baker Street in 2004. However, start-ups and SMEs looking for smaller office space in Paddington have struggled until recently, with developers catering primarilly for larger corporate tenants.

Today, however, a host of new office operators are offering smaller serviced offices in Paddington on flexible terms. And a more traditional landlord – British Land – has introduced an innovative all-inclusive rental deal at 4 Kingdom Street within the new Paddington Central campus, opposite Paddington Station. The deal provides tenants with a fitted out, branded office. The building also offers a range of impressive facilities, including London’s highest basketball court.

For startups and established businesses who prioritise networking and flexibility, Eastbourne Terrace provides shared, coworking office space in Paddington, along with meeting rooms and virtual office facilities.

Excellent communications into central London are provided via London Paddington and Lancaster Gate Tube Station. The 20 minute Heathrow Express from London Paddington to Heathrow Airport is one of the areas most important links. This will be complimented (in December 2018) by the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail), which will connect West London with Farringdon and Canary Wharf in the East in a matter of minutes.
