London Paddington is a huge attraction for visitors from across the world. A grade I listed building in its own right, the station has been standing and in operation since the 1800s. Having undergone several renovations since then, the building has still retained its recognisable arch shape in the main train shed. Throughout the station there are various shops, cafes and restaurants. You may even see a few homages to famous characters tied to the station’s history. There is also a pay and display car park attached to the station, which means there’s plenty of opportunities to park up your hired car and explore!
Paddington Bear Statue
You can’t talk about Paddington Station without mentioning Paddington Bear. As told in the book, Paddington Station is where Paddington Bear first met his adoptive family, The Browns. To commemorate this, a life-size Paddington Bear statue was designed and built to sit on platform 1. This bronze sculpture was designed by Marcus Cornish and unveiled in 2000 and remains a big crowd drawer to this day.
Alexander Fleming Laboratory
Just a few minutes from the station, attached to St. Mary’s Hospital, is Alexander Fleming’s Laboratory. This hidden gem has been restored to its original 1928 condition, complete with era-appropriate equipment. Inside you can view exhibits which tell the story of Fleming’s discovery of penicillin, whilst also telling visitors more about the man’s life before and after the discovery.
