London area of Bayswater guide
What to do and where to stay in London's Bayswater neighbourhood
The culturally diverse inhabitants of Bayswater live in one of London's most architecturally traditional areas. London's Arabic, American, and Greek communities make their homes in pillared Georgian terraces and neat garden squares, with a great expanse of Hyde Park's landscaped English parkland almost on their doorsteps. Edgware Road is London's Arab high street, and in summer the air is rich with the scents of Okacbasi barbecues and shisha pipes (now banished to the outdoor terraces) and full of the sounds of Middle Eastern and North African music. The Americans, meanwhile, congregate around Whiteley's, a century-old department store that was the closest thing London has to a US-style mall prior to the opening of Westfield and One New Change. The surrounding hotels offer a fabulous base from which to explore central London.
