Paddingrton Station London

The National Rail station is officially named London Paddington, a name commonly used outside London but rarely by Londoners, who call it just Paddington, as on the London Underground map.

This same practice applies to all the London mainline rail termini, except London Bridge.

Parts of the station, including the main train shed, date from 1854, when it was built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel as the London terminus for the Great Western Railway (GWR).

It is one of eleven stations in London managed by Network Rail
