1) Location, location, location
The great thing about choosing hotels in Paddington for your trip to London is that you are close enough to everything in the centre of London that you don’t need to spend too long walking or taking public transport. If you take the family to the theatre, or to visit the famous landmarks, the little ones will be assured that it will not take long to get back to your hotel once fatigue sets in. Paddington is a peaceful part of the city, with leafy squares and peaceful residential streets where the little ones can nod off comfortably. It’s also very convenient for families flying in via Heathrow, thanks to the Heathrow Express train!
2) They can run riot in the nearby parks
Sometimes kids can find the hustle and bustle a little overwhelming, and it’s good to balance out the urban attractions with some hearty green spaces. Fortunately, accommodation in Paddington London is surrounded by some of the largest, finest and most beautiful parks in the city. Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are a short walk from the Park Grand Paddington Court. As well as expansive green space to walk around there are serene lakes and interesting monuments to track down. Pack a picnic and make an afternoon of it – the kids will love having the chance to burn off some energy and stretch their legs.
3) They can wake up to the tastiest breakfast
When booking family hotels deals in London, be sure that your accommodation includes breakfast in the rate. Children love waking up to a delicious breakfast which will full them up for hours and fuel them for exploring the city. Every booking at the Park Grand Paddington Court comes with a full English breakfast, prepared fresh daily. There’s never been an easier way to lure them out of bed.
4) They can get a selfie with the Queen
Opting to stay in Paddington puts you within easy reach of some of London’s top museums for children. Only a short journey from the hotels in Paddington, you can be at Madame Tussauds London – the world famous waxworks museum. Children will love getting selfies and family photos with the likes of Usain Bolt, the Marvel Avengers gang, Hollywood stars and our very own monarch, Queen Elizabeth II!
5) They’ll never get bored with free Wi-Fi and TV
Of course, you’re in London to explore and check out the famous sights and iconic landmarks. But we all need some downtime, especially young children. All rooms at the Park Grand Paddington Court are equipped with a flat-screen television with satellite cables and complimentary Wi-Fi, which means they can cosy up into their comfortable bed and watch their favourite film and stay connected during their time in London. Make sure you pick up some popcorn, and use your complimentary in-room hot drink making facilities to brew them a hot chocolate before you settle into your family film night.
6) They’ll be next door neighbours with the zoo
If they need convincing, mention to them that the Park Grand Paddington Court has some rather exotic neighbours including lions, penguins and cheeky monkeys! ZSL London Zoo is a short tube ride from the hotel and is one of the best days out with kids in London. Besides visiting the residents, children can enjoy watching feeding sessions and listening to educational talks about the animals. There are always seasonal activities and events taking place as well so be sure to check the calendar before you go.
7) They can swap their pocket money for new toys
Your accommodation in Paddington London puts you in easy access of plenty of shops, if your kids have some money saved up to spend in London!

London’s largest shopping mall, Westfield London, is only three miles away. Nearby Kensington is an affluent, calmer shopping experience free of the crowds. You can also take an amble through the bohemian delights of the daily Portobello Road Market where they can be impressed by quirky treasures and the colourful buildings!
