Video: Secrets Of Paddington Station

Ah, Paddington station. Home to trains, bears and ... disused underground conveyer belts?

The London terminus is 162 years old, a most respectable age we're sure you'll agree, and has understandably seen some changes over the last three centuries.

You may pass through regularly, but how much of Paddington station have you really seen? Geoff Marshall goes on, above and below the station to access the parts not normally open to the public.

Londonist is proud to be working with Paddington Partnership on a project to reveal the secrets, surprises, gems, wildlife, heritage and culture around Paddington.

I read somewhere that Brunel was never paid for the roof, which he invoiced separately as an additional job.
