    Train delayed? No problem, just head to the Mad Bishop.

    Between 630-730pm on Fridays is just horrible. Avoid!!

    The shops are a bit hard to navigate. The WiFi coverage varies over the concourse with various hotspots available.

    The first Paddington Connect to Heathrow leaves at 0442. Platform info display 10 mins before departure. Oyster can be used till H&H. Need ticket for further travel. Takes 25 min + walk to terminal

    Just visiting is worth, the Harry Potter store is here (super expensive btw).

    Friday evening? Get there at least 45 mins early. Insufficient staff and ticket machines to deal with pickups and new bookings. Huge queues.

    Pieter Westerhof · March 13, 2015
  • Brian S.

    Well located in the city center. The London Heathrow express is undoubtably the best way to get into the city center short of a helicopter. Otherwise it's just a basic train station.

  • Otan A.

    15 min train ride to airport. Awesome.

    Otan A. · March 12, 2015

    I like this station, it's not insanely busy and it's also airy and pretty. Good amount of shops and cafés to make time for your train.

    Remember the sneaky exit to platforms 10-14 if you're coming from H&C line or the HEX or it's a long walk

    Sarah Taylor · February 17, 2015
  • Brad T.

    One of your nicer train stations. Mind you. Still a train station.

    Brad T · February 12, 2015
  • Johannes D.

    The Hammersmith and City line and Circle line are a 5+ minute walk away from the main station. Follow the colored lines on the flour and allow extra time!

    Johannes Driessen · February 4, 2015
  • Helen L.

    Convenient, the signs are very clear to understand.

    The Bagel Factory is actually pretty good for a quick to-go meal. If you're killing time, find the Paddington Bear statue!

    megan · January 27, 2015

    Very well connected station to subaway and rail. Lots of options for food. Quiet cafe and sandwich shop at the top floor towards the back of station.

    Brunel · January 20, 2015
  • Bijan Y.

    Not a fan of the architecture but functionally it works. And the restaurants ate good variety within M&s as well as walk bridge to the Hilton in case you need a more private meeting.

    great looking station

    If the blue line ran half as well as trains in this station, I wouldn't dread my commute nearly as much.

    Cory Wesley · January 17, 2015

    Free wifi! Heathrow express will take you to/from airport in 15/20 minutes!
