Paddington Basin is an space of Paddington, London named after the close by canal basin.
The junction of the Regent’s Canal and the Grand Junction Canal is shut so far however the basin itself is the terminus of the Paddington Arm of the Grand Junction Canal. It was opened in 1801. Paddington was chosen due to its place on the New Street which led to the east, offering for onward transport. In its heyday, the basin was a significant trans-shipment facility, and a hive of exercise.
A consortium in partnership with British Waterways started work in January 2000 by draining the basin.
The basin is now the centre of a significant redevelopment and is surrounded by trendy buildings. It’s the website of The Rolling Bridge, in-built 2004.
Marks & Spencer Head Workplace is now situated right here after transferring from their Baker Road website in 2004.
