This formerly working class suburb has become increasingly gentrified over the years and is now a particularly cosmopolitan destination. Decades ago, in its former guise, its affordability made it a haven for artists and creative types. These days its better known for its prominent art galleries such as Sherman and Tim Olsen and many vibrant pubs such as The Paddington Inn, The London and The Four in Hand.
Presided over by The Royal pub, the junction known as Five Ways along Glenmore Road is home to a number of upmarket boutiques and charming restaurants. The bustling Paddington markets, held in the local Paddington Primary School on Oxford Street every Saturday, are a popular attraction for locals and tourists alike.
Bordered by Darlinghurst, Woollahra, Edgecliff and Surry Hills, Paddington has a number of landmark buildings. Along Oxford Street, the sandstone Victoria Barracks are still in practical use today, the impressive Paddington Town Hall features the boutique Chauvel Cinama and Juniper Hall is a fine example of Colonial Georgian architecture. Trumper Park is a charming neighbourhood oval used by local sporting teams. The redeveloped Fox Studios is home to cinemas, working movie studios and large-scale entertainment venues such as the Hordern Pavilion.
Paddington is well serviced by bus transport from the City and Bondi Junction.
