Bayswater Area Guide

Bayswater is one of London’s most architecturally traditional areas with culturally diverse residents in the area, including Arabic, American and Greek communities with pillared Georgian terraces and shared garden squares.

Due to its cultural and social mix, a wide range of restaurants and food stores can be found along Queensway, which gives the area some extraordinary contrasts.
Bayswater is historically famous for Whiteleys, London’s first department store, which congregated the Americans as this was the closest think London had to a US-style mall before Westfield opened. It was also famous for the amount of hotels in the area, with now most are being converted into residential blocks.

Bayswater is an area where residents tend to reside due to advantage of the great schools in the area, easy commute to Central London, close proximity to Hyde Park and many local shops and restaurants.
