Pack up for a visit Paddington

Paddington is a trendy suburb that is located less than ten kilometres from Sydney's CBD, and only a stone's throw away from the ocean making it the ideal location for holiday rentals. It is adored for its cafe culture and vibrant collection of trendy shops that are loved and often visited by Sydneysiders and holiday makers. Arranging a holiday apartment in Paddington is a popular past time for many travellers who come to visit Sydney, as the area delightfully portrays a slice of Sydney's history, intertwined with modernism and chic interior designs. A lot of Paddington's streets are still laced with terrace houses that were constructed in Sydney's earlier days, and many of their interiors (including the shops) have been cleverly modernized and rejuvenated by talented interior architects.

On top of that, the ocean and city views you can capture from Paddington's serviced apartments are priceless. You will also find that public transport is frequent, and a range of brilliant things to see and do are very close by.

Activities in and Around Paddington

If you are thinking about organizing holiday accommodation in Paddington, you absolutely MUST check out the fantastic variety of shops in the area. The main strip is located on Oxford Street, and you will find a colourful array of designer stores and boutiques that sell unique products, including just about every gift you could imagine. Clothing and apparel stores are abundant and diverse, as are cafes if you are in need of a quick caffeine hit and a delectable muffin.

If you have a look at Paddington's location on a map, you will notice immediately how close it is to many of Sydney's bays and beaches. Bondi beach is easily accessible via bus, and you can hop on without difficulty at one of many stops along Oxford Street. You can also discover the chic, luxurious nature of Double Bay, have a picnic and admire water views at Vaucluse, or soak in as much of Sydney's beautiful coastline as possible by taking the Bondi to Bronte walk.

Sydney's Centennial Parklands are also just around the corner from your holiday accommodation in Paddington. If you are travelling with your kids, you can enrol them in a popular trapeze class depending on the time of the year! You will also find bird watching tours, an array of performances at the Hordern Pavillion and of course the Moonlight cinemas.

Paddington and its neighbouring suburbs are just as vibrant and energetic during the night as they are in the day. On Oxford Street and at Kings Cross you will find many popular bars and clubs that cater for all ages and styles.

Climate in Paddington

Paddington's charm remains consistent throughout the year, and its renowned shopping strip will forever offer you an array of gifts that are forever difficult to say no to. If you decide to arrange accommodation in winter, you can overcome Sydney's chilly weather with a great mug of hot chocolate in one of many trendy cafes. If you are considering travelling in summer, however, you can take advantage of the hot weather, and admire the beauty of the beaches and nature reserves in the surrounding areas.

Getting there from the UK

There are a collection of great flights that will offer you a comfortable and often reasonable flight to Sydney from the UK. You can choose from either a direct flight or a stop over in a range of countries often in Asia or the UAE.

Once you have arrived in Sydney, there are a variety of ways you can reach Paddington from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport. The easiest option is to arrange collection by a driver from the Airport, who will drop you at the door of your holiday rental. Public transportation from the airport is possible but is not as quick as being driven. You can catch a train from The airport to Town hall and from there you can hop on a bus that will take you down Oxford Street, to Paddington.

Excellent value for money with a warm welcome and help to get settled in quickly. The décor in the apartment and the kitchenette equipment is tired but adequate . Given other reviews we found there was little noise from the road even with the window open .
