Synonymous with style, Paddington is an inner Sydney neighborhood where perfectly coiffed masses clink chai latte cups in the morning and cocktail glasses at night. Chic age-is-only-a-number-somethings dress up to amble down Oxford Street, Paddington’s favorite promenade filled with gourmet cafes, cheeky pubs, bespoke jewelers, and every known name in designer fashion. Paddington's beauty is more than skin deep—grand Victorian homes and lush parks offer cinematic escapes off its main roads.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
