Hyde Park

About our ward

Hyde Park Ward is bordered by the Bayswater Road, Gloucester Terrace, Marylebone Flyover and Edgware Road. It is home to Paddington Station, the development around Paddington Basin, St. Mary's Hospital (part of the Imperial College Healthcare Trust which is the UK's first Academic Health Science Centre) the only Hospital in the City of Westminster, and the bustle of Edgware Road. Crossrail will run under our streets.

Tucked amongst these landmarks are residential garden squares, flats, offices and local shops. We are a thriving and multiculturally diverse society with the peace of Hyde Park on our doorstep!

We, the local Conservatives, are a merry band always looking for innovative ways of fundraising and enjoying ourselves and welcome new members with open arms. We campaign on both local and national issues and keep in touch with electors through our publications and personal visits.
