    Named after its London namesake, the suburb of
    Paddington showcases streets lined with restored
    Victorian terrace houses with very distinctive
    features, like high ceilings and cast-iron balconies.
    It is home to some of Sydney’s most prestigious art
    galleries, including the Wagner Art Gallery and the
    Butler Good Gallery, as well as the tourist
    attraction, Paddington Markets, located in the grounds
