There is a bohemian spirit in this area with traditional pubs, restaurants and antique shops including the world-famous Portobello Road Antique Market.
Notting Hill is not only a set for the famous movie but it is also famous for Europe’s biggest street festival and one of the city’s best markets. It attracts thousands of people to its quirky backstreets and lovely gardens. Notting Hill Gate is the main tube station (Central, District and Circle Line). There are also many surrounding tube stations such as Westbourne Park Station and Ladbroke Grove.
There is never a dull moment when in Notting Hill, every August bank holiday millions of people gather here for the Notting Hill Carnival. They fill the streets with costumes, marching bands, Calypso music and a variety of mouth watering food.
Portobello Market is a very popular market and runs from 7 days a week. The best days to hit up the markets however are Friday and Saturday and we would definitely recommend stopping by if you wish to find some delicious snacks, antiques or vintage clothing. Notting Hill is of course most famous for the romantic comedy released in 1999. It immediately became a popular place to visit as much of the film was shot in and around the area. There is a Notting Hill Film Tour which shows you some of the famous locations featured in the film and you can also learn about the history of the area.
There are a few museums and galleries in the area worth seeing such as The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising which is one of London’s quirkiest museums. There is also a gallery called Graffik which is dedicated to urban art and definitely worth a look.
For a quiet pint in Notting Hill, head to traditional pubs such as the Hillgate, The Cow or The Elgin which hosts a diverse mix of live music throughout the week. If you are looking for a more glamorous evening make your way to Beach Blanket Babylon for some delicious cocktails. Notting Hill is also conveniently close to Central London and the Westfield Shopping Mall which means it is one of the best places to stay in London.
