Getting there. The Norfolk Plaza is located in Norfolk Square, 200 yards east of Paddington Station. Express trains serve both airports into the center of London, for transfers to taxis or the Underground. The closest Underground station is Paddington. Taxis are best hailed from Praed Street, one block north of the hotel.
Getting around. The hotel lies outside the zone where new tolls apply for driving into central London. Though there are nearby parking facilities, traffic is difficult even for the seasoned driver. Taxis or the Underground are recommended.
The money-saving Oyster Card is a smartcard that stores up to 90 pounds of pay-as-you-go credit. It can be used on the Tubes, buses, DLR, trams and select national rail services throughout London. Oyster Cards are less expensive than single fares, and daily price capping automatically calculates the least expensive fare for single-day journeys. Oyster Cards can be purchased at the Oyster website, most Tube station ticket offices, at Oyster Ticket Stops, at select National Rail ticket offices, at select London Travel Information Centres, and by telephone at 0845 330 9876.
