Bayswater Road is the main road running along the northern edge of Hyde Park in London.

In the east, Bayswater Road originates from the Marble Arch junction, and at its western end it continues into Notting Hill Gate. It is mostly within the City of Westminster but a small portion of the road's western end lies in Kensington and Chelsea.

It is where the fictional upper-middle class Forsyte family live in John Galsworthy's The Forsyte Saga.
