Bayswater is an area within the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in central London. It is a built-up district located 4 km (about 2.5 miles) west-north-west of Charing Cross, bordering the north of Kensington Gardens and having a population density of 17,500 per square kilometre.Bayswater is one of London's most cosmopolitan areas: a diverse local population is augmented by a high concentration of hotels. As well as the native English there are many other nationalities: in particular there is a significant Arab population, a large Greek community (attracted by St Sophia's Cathedral, Moscow Road – London's Greek Orthodox Cathedral), many Americans and London's biggest Brazilian community.The area has attractive streets and garden squares lined with Victorian stucco terraces, mostly now subdivided into flats and boarding houses. The property ranges from very expensive apartments to small studio flats. There are also purpose-built apartment blocks dating from the inter-war period as well as more recent developments, and a large council estate, the 650-flat Hallfield Estate, designed by Sir Denys Lasdun and now largely sold off.

  • We walked from the Paddington station, finding a place of lodging, our. It is natural that is a simple map and addresses written clues, so difficult to understand. To spin around the area, helped people in this area. Call out to passers-by, and examined. Do not know that I asked to close shop. To get this experience twice. This area was a residential area, but small and medium shops and privately-run restaurants all over the place. Heart warming experience to.
