Where to go?

Hi all -

What is there to do - sightseeing wise - that's near Paddington? I'm getting in Tuesday morning, and going to store my bag there for the day, sight-see, and then head out to the Waterloo station to take a train.

Should I just go straight to the Waterloo station? Better stuff there?

I'm 24 years old, just looking to check stuff out.

At Waterloo Station, you are very close to the Thames and the SothBank Arts Centre- look for signs at the station to the Southbank Centre-Festival Hall-National Theatre- and in a few minutes you are on the Embankment, near the Festival Hall, with views across the river, a short walk to the London Eye, Westminster Bridge. All pedestrianised along the Embankment, a very pleasant stroll along the riverside.

Hi: If you're catching a train from Waterloo, then you may as well store your bag there for the day. Lots to see in that area compared to Paddington. Depending on your interests, Westminster Abbey and Houses of Parliament are just across the river; Imperial War Museum, Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre are all on the South Bank. If you want to see the Tower of London, it's a couple of connections on the Tube.
