Paddington is a London Underground station that is in the Bakerloo, Circle and District lines. It is located on Praed Street to the south of Paddington mainline station and has entrances from Praed Street and from inside the mainline train station. On the Bakerloo line the station is between Warwick Avenue and Edgware Road and on the Circle and District lines it is between Bayswater and Edgware Road. It is in London Fare Zone 1.

The station can be divided in two parts: underground platforms, opened in 1868 and deep-level platforms, opened in 1913. It is one of two separate Underground stations of the same name. The other station, to the north of the mainline station, is in the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines. Although shown on the London Underground map as a single station,[5] the two stations are not directly linked and exchange between them is via the merge of the mainline station.
