THREE miles from Trafalgar Square, Bayswater is served by five Tube stations. Lancaster Gate and Queensway are on the Central line and Bayswater is on the District and Circle lines. All are in Zone 1 and an annual travelcard costs £1,364. Royal Oak and Westbourne Park are on the Hammersmith & City and Circle lines in Zone 2 and an annual travelcard to Zone 1 also costs £1,364.
Commuter buses run along Westbourne Grove — the No 7 to Oxford Circus, the No 23 to Aldwych and the No 36 to Marble Arch and Victoria. The No 148 runs along Bayswater Road to Victoria and Westminster.
KFH estate agent Paul Hyman is convinced the positive effect on Bayswater of the Elizabeth line’s arrival in December this year has been underestimated.
