Bayswater Area Overview
Cosmopolitan, yet more culturally diverse than its Notting Hill neighbour, Bayswater enjoys a fine Central London location, stretching from the Northern border of Hyde Park through to the west end of Oxford Street. It’s an area of contrasts; you have the hustle and bustle of Queensway contrasting with leafy back streets of peaceful garden squares and handsome Victorian houses.
The Bayswater area is particularly popular with young professionals and well-heeled families and it has a significant international population. There is an interesting mix of Arab, Greek, American and Afro-Caribbean communities, and these influences can be felt in many of Bayswater’s bars, restaurants and shops.
As a prime Central London location, Bayswater’s property market is relatively good value for money, compared with neighbouring districts. It offers all of the amenities you could wish for and is close to many beautiful open spaces such as Holland Park and Hyde Park.
What really makes Bayswater stand out is its excellent location. It’s within walking distance of so many great parts of London: Notting Hill, the West End, Edgware Road – all of which have their own unique attractions. It also boasts some good local schools and world-class restaurants, such as ‘The Ledbury’ on Ledbury Road with 2 Michelin stars and Tom Conran’s ‘The Cow’.
