I was expecting more from this neighborhood. Maybe it is the famous movie that has raised the expectations. Either way I was not impressed. We found, however, a great italian restaurant to conclude our visit.

A vibrant neighborhood, with lots of stores and restaurants. It is pleasant to live there as well. It looks a little bit like the 5th arrondissement in Paris. Low key, friendly and lively.

We had a lovely few hours wandering around and discovering all the different cafes, shops etc. would recommend a visit here as a lot less hectic than central London.

This famous bookshop still has the same atmosphere of the famous movie. Inside of this lovely book shop is not noisy by tourists even many people took picture outside of the entrance. Many selective kid's books were on sale. And of course, the travel section is at the end.

Notting Hill is the kind of place most of us could probably imagine living. For Seattleites, we felt at home! We wandered the streets for a couple hours, shopped up and down Portobello Rd and ate at Mike's cafe. A delightful time where you don't feel quite as crowded as central London.

The place is amazing, beautiful and magical. I stayed there during all the day. The restaurants are excellent and is easy to arrive there since London, just using SubWay. My trip was in August/2005.

My husband really wanted to visit but I feel were went at the wrong time of year, it was very cold & no atmosphere. Hardly any stalls or street food on offer, we were very disappointed but will maybe try again in June.

We lived in a hotel in this area, it was a nice place to stay away from busy central London, affordable accommodation, loads of lovely restaurants. Also, from what I remember there was nice flea market on Saturdays, can't miss that!

Beautiful colorful houses in a semi-quiet area, depending if the flee market is ongoing or not. Personally i advise to visit on the days the market is ongoing. Such a lively place where you can literally fond everything

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
