  WHAT’S LIVING IN Bayswater LIKE?

If you are looking for a quieter life amidst the city, Bayswater might just be the place for you. This area is, in general, home to wealthy individuals and families who don’t mind the tourist traffic coming through on a daily basis – in fact, it's got the highest concentration of hotels in London. Despite being a bedroom for tourists, this is a vibrant, tightknit neighborhood with its own community magazine, local events throughout the year, and a residents’ association. People who move to Bayswater tend to say here for a long time.

Most of the properties here are elegant white terraced homes of four to five storeys. Many of these are single-family homes but some have been converted to flats as well. There are also some purpose-built apartment buildings here.

Bayswater is a great spot for those who like greenery. Nearby Hyde Park and Kensington Park offer 625 acres (253 hectares) of space for athletics, picnics, and leisurely walks. The neighborhood has a cosmopolitan side as well, with bars, clubs, and some of the hottest restaurants in the city. Within the next few years, a new rail station and more updates to the retail areas will mean that this locale will become even more popular.

In the end, this neighborhood has a nice mixture of quiet living combined with cutting edge boutiques and modern amenities.

Baywater is bordered on the north by Maida Vale, on the east by Paddington, on the south by Hyde Park, and on the west by Notting Hill.
