Merchant Square A modern development at the heart of Paddington's waterways, Merchant Square is home to shops, restaurants and businesses as well as two beautiful lifting bridges and London's first Floating Pocket Park. Thomas Heatherwick's Rolling Bridge has become a tourist attraction in its own right and the cantilevered Fan Bridge, designed by Knight Architects, only adds to the attractions of this corner of west London. The three-metre-wide moving structure spanning 20 metres across the head of Paddington Basin uses an action similar to that of a traditional Japanese fan. Both bridges open at midday every Wednesday and Friday and at 2pm on Saturdays.
