Paddington Station was first opened in 1854 and since then, has been redeveloped substantially, most recently undergoing a project to restore the Edwardian glass roof.

Parts of the station remain under construction, while a new Crossrail station is built on site.

The present station was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel with assistance from Sir Matthew Digby Wyatt, with the modern Lawn area and concourse remodelled by Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners, in conjunction with Rodney Fitch.

Features include the restored Edwardian roof and platform 1, the station clock and war memorial, the Lawn retail area spanning several floors, and the ironwork on the gables, designed by Eiffel.
