Biggest problem with Wasabi ready prepared meals is that they are luke warm and then rapidly degrade to stone cold. This is not good for chicken dishes - I am surprised there are not more cases of Salmonella.

Refurbished old train station, very clean and well kept. Well connected both with the Heathrow airport through the “heathrow express” train (expensive but fast) and with the underground.

A busy mainline station for travelling West from London, an impressive building with Victorian suspended ceiling, decent amenities, shops, refuelling stops and tube connections.

You won't find locker facilities at Paddington but as the other reviewer answered there is a left baggage office at platform 12. The price varies depending on how many bags you'd leave and how long you'd be leaving them.
