|Route outline (key)|
The A4209 is a short A-road in the Paddington area of west London. The road was originally unclassified but presumably dates to the early 1920s.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A5 Edgware Road as a western continuation of the A501. The road heads southwestwards along the leafy Sussex Gardens. By the end of the road it is still tree-lined but not quite so leafy. We reach a roundabout, the actual gardens, with the prominent St James's Church opposite; this is actually hardly visible.
The A4209 turns left at the roundabout and immediately joins a gyratory. The road ends here on the A402. Here, that road runs along the north side of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. However, eastbound traffic has to detour at this gyratory to do a circuit of the Lancaster Hotel.
