Edgware Road is one of London's all-night areas, lively and buzzing until the very early hours of the morning. The shops and restaurants on Edgware Road itself are open till late and the road is always busy with tourists milling around and taking in the sights and sounds. There is a big Arab community in Edgware Road and a lot of the shops and restaurants cater for them specifically with lots of Lebanese and Arabic restaurants. Edgware Road is a lively and in some parts exotic area with men sitting outside of cafes and smoking their hubbly bubbly! Paddington serves one of the main London train stations and as expected there are a lot of hotels, B&B’s and hostels dotted around the station. There are a lot of young student types walking around with rucksacks looking for a place to stay!
