Paddington Green is a small conservation area in north-east Westminster; north of the Harrow Road.
Paddington Green contains part of the ancient site of Paddington and Lilestone Villages. This area became fashionable at the end of the 18th century, then on the edge of the countryside but with good links to the west end. Today, the conservation area is centred on St Mary's Church and the gardens, formerly a burial ground. The church, built in 1788-91, and the short terrace to the west of Paddington Green, are the only surviving 18th century buildings. The remainder of built form consists of larger scale residential developments of various ages and styles from the 19th and 20th centuries.
Paddington Green originally formed part of the Maida Vale Conservation Area. It was designated a separate conservation area in 1988.
