Owner description: Every Friday, at midday, the Rolling Bridge uncurls itself to be a footbridge over an inlet on the Grand Union Canal, in the Paddington Basin, and then curls up into a ball giving no clues to its hidden abilities.
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I've been to see this bridge on a few occasions. It opens on Friday's at mid-day and is just a quick event, but worth making a detour for. Can be a bit tricky to locate (Google maps work perfectly), so be sure to arrive early.

The boats on the canal are also quite interesting and make for a pleasant walk. But don't be tempted to stay and eat locally, Paddington itself is rather down-at-heel and despite a few attempts, I'm yet to be impressed by the local restaurants. Much better to eat elsewhere in London.
