Looking for things to do in Bayswater? Look no further! Bayswater is a largely residential area but is conveniently close to many popular spots. Metro Storage has been offering state-of-the-art self storage to local residents and businesses since 2009, and as experts in the area, we wanted to share our picks for the best things to do in Bayswater. 

While we specialise in providing top-notch self storage in West London, we also know a thing or two about great activities in Bayswater. Here are our favourite things to do:

Best things to do in bayswater west londonBest for Historic Architecture – St. Sophia’s Cathedral

St. Sophia’s Cathedral, also known as the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Divine Wisdom, is a beautiful and historic landmark in Bayswater. It’s a must-see for its stunning architecture and serene atmosphere.

Best for Scenic Walks – Kensington Gardens

Adjacent to Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens offers beautiful scenery, the Serpentine Gallery, and the magnificent Kensington Palace. It’s a perfect spot for a leisurely stroll or a picnic.

Best for Transport Links

Bayswater is in such a great location – it is very close to all the transport links you could want (Paddington train station, Paddington, Bayswater, and Queensway tube stations, buses – even the canal!). It’s very close to all the main areas of Central London (West End, Marylebone, Soho, Notting Hill, Kensington, to name just a few), while being just far enough away to be peaceful and quiet if you want it. A definite plus!

Best for Bowling – Queens

Everyone loves bowling, right?! Queens is one of the best sets of lanes in Central London, offering ice skating and a variety of eating and drinking options.

Best for Shopping – From High Street Shopping to Westfield and Portobello Road

Bayswater offers a fantastic shopping experience, blending the charm of local boutiques with modern stores. The streets are lined with independent shops offering a varied selection, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Just a short walk away, you’ll find the iconic Portobello Road, famous for its vibrant markets and eclectic shops. And with Westfield just a couple of tube stops away, every shopping need is covered.

Best for International Cuisine

Due to the truly multicultural mix of residents in the Bayswater area, there is a wealth of international restaurants. Popular cuisines include Lebanese, Moroccan, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Malaysian, Persian, and British – the list goes on. If you want top-notch dining, then The Ledbury is only a short walk away!

Best for Outdoor Activities – Hyde Park

Our number one thing to do in Bayswater is utilising Hyde Park, which is right on your doorstep. Hyde Park is the largest park in Central London, and to have this within a 5-minute walk is fantastic. With its paths for running, walking, cycling, and riding, its lakes, large open spaces for lounging on a sunny day, concerts, and Winter Wonderland at Christmas, Hyde Park truly makes Bayswater a special place.

Additional Activities

  • Best for Canal Walks – Grand Union Canal: Enjoy a peaceful walk along the Grand Union Canal, starting from Little Venice and passing through beautiful scenery and historic sites.
