A split garden either side of Paddington Street. Near to Marylebone High Street it has plenty of benches to rest the weary feet. Also a good child friendly play area on the south side. Only spoilt by the current building going on nearby.

i stumbled across this place quite by accident and was delighted to see how well it was both kept, and used.

Great spot.

I did the Paddington Trail on Saturday with friends who live outside London, so I did have the benefit of local knowledge. The children didn't know about the cartoon the adults had on TV as kids but had seen the trailer for the film. They were really up for The long walk and it was a good job! We had printed off the map that is online and took this with us. There is postcodes so you can check on your phone when you are nearby using GPS. We started at paddington station and headed to Convent Garden via Regent ST and Leicester Square on other business first. But picked up some bears along the way. This was so much fun. On the trail you see all the sights, we saw changing of the guard, Big Ben, Nelsons column, view down the Mall , the cenotaph, 10 downing st. We went across the river and did the south bank after dark. So saw HMS Belfast, Golden Hind, Tower Bridge and Tower of London (and Poppies of course) It was amazing. The petite 7 year old girl didn't complain once and repeatedly said "this is great". We covered so much ground and were out for hours. Most places on this trail there was also "The Year Of The Bus" sculptures too and I think this goes on longer so if you can't do Paddington check out the bus trail. Great idea for all age groups ! Plan in some stops for refreshments and wear comfy shoes! Only other tip... Check tube access if travelling with people with limited mobility.

The Paddington Street Garden was originally created in the 18th century. It served as an additional burial ground for the Marylebone Parish Church. Now this is a quaint and attractive neighbourhood garden near to where the weekend Marylebone Farmers Market is held.

The Paddington Street Garden makes a great spot to rest your feet if planning to spend time in this area of Marylebone. We have enjoyed grabbing some small bites from the Farmer Market and the shops along nearby Moxon Street, enjoying them at the park benches within the garden. Its much closer than the large Regent's Park, which is also a good spot for picnic and leisure activities.

In the end, Regent's Park is a better option for most visitors. However, the small Paddington Street Garden offers an intimate, quiet, small park experience and is conveniently located for those on Paddington Street and Moxon Street. It is a short walk from Baker Street as well.
