    Basically catch the trains here if you want to head out west. Changing platforms for the tube is actually really annoying though due to the distance. Also, the Heathrow Express departs from here, but ...  more »

    I used this train station to visit Oxford x a day with the tour of Sandemans. It is a very clean, well signposted place with all kind of shops. Transport in England is very good and this season is no exception. Take into account that it is necessary to pay with coins to go to the bathroom.

  • Ideal place to go if you are waiting to catch a train from Paddington. Food is good and there is plenty of variety to choose from. They only sell bottled beers and nothing on draft so just be wary of that if your looking for a nice pint with your food.
  • I waited a very long time for the menu and another long wait to give an order. The food was another seemingly interminable wait before the the soup arrived. This was only tepid, and not leek and potato as expected but tomato. The meal when it finally came after another long wait was just ok. Bread was stale but sausage and chips were nice. Not very hot again. Another long wait for the bill made it very unlikely that I shall make a return visit. I had forgotten that the last time my husband and I went there it was the same.
  • The food was great. Classic fish & chips. A nice place to sit and people watch. Family friendly until early evening.
  • Superb English breakfast. Excellent service. Recomend arriving just before 8:00, and the rush.
  • Nah, Never again. The pizza was whag. The Chips were whag and The ribs Nothing special bathed in bbq Sauce. Not The Type of Taste I expected. And The service was le miserable.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
