London has an incredibly rich heritage, which is hardly surprising, seeing as it is over 2000 years old. If you’re fortunate enough to be staying in the Chilworth Hotel Paddington, you will be able to reach the marvellous historical sites in no time at all. After a long day, we recommend that before you head back to your accommodation, you include a trip to The Victoria Pub. Named after the amazing Queen Victoria, this pub is indeed regal in many ways. The perfect spot for a relaxed early evening drink, The Victoria provides a cosy atmosphere among an amazing interior of ornate designs and grand features. Established in 1833, The Victoria was one of Charles Dickens’ favourite writing spots in the city.
The Mad Bishop and Bear
If you have opted for one of the Paddington Station Hotels, we imagine that you need quick access to public transport during your stay. Well, if you have some time to kill before the next train, there’s a fantastic pub conveniently location inside Paddington Station itself. The Mad Bishop and Bear pub was named by the winner of a competition and is the perfect place to enjoy a drink without stress – as all the train times and platforms are displayed inside. Here, you can expect to find an impressive selection of real Ales, to be enjoyed in a light and airy environment surrounded by wood panelling.
Some people visit London for the museums and Galleries and others for the wonderful afternoon tea in London Paddington. However, the city is also well known for its collection of trendy bars and pubs that promise an insta-worthy experience in a great location. Old Mary’s Pub is a brilliant example of this. Perfect for a cocktail with friends, Old Mary’s Pub is the old servant quarters of a Grade II listed building, and sits below a Grill and stylish cocktail bar. Old Mary’s is perfect for those wanting a quirky atmosphere, as you will be surrounded by traditional furnishings that truly work to make this establishment unique.
The Pride of Paddington
If a quintessential British pub experience is what you’re after – then look no further than The Pride of Paddington. The charm of this establishment is in its simplicity – as you are invited to enjoy a beer among locals, with the footy in the background, just to enjoy the atmosphere. This is the perfect spot for those who want a quick pint before dinner or a relaxing spot in between visiting sites, situated just minutes away from the Paddington Station hotels.
