  1. About Bayswater

    Bayswater is an area of west London in the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to the west. It is a built-up district located 3 miles (4.8 km) west-north-west of Charing Cross, bordering the north of Hyde Park over Kensington Gardens. Bayswater is one of London's most cosmopolitan areas wherein a diverse local population is augmented by a high concentration of hotels. 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. Queensway and Westbourne Grove are its busiest main streets, both having many ethnic-cuisine restaurants.
