The colourful houses in this neighbourhood are one of the reasons why you shouldnt' miss it. They're everywhere, and look cheerful against the grey winter sky of london. The portobello road market is also very nice, full of vintage clothes and some other curious items. There are also plenty of restaurants and coffee shops to rest and gain some energy... More

Interesting place to explore. Always new pubs and bars to find. The great thing for me is that it is not full of all the normal chain of shops, so you can find unique food, clothes, drink etc. And there are a few quiet areas as well, you can literally sit down and hear the birds singing!

I often choose to take a walk around Notting Hill & Portobello Road when in London. It is so different to other areas in London. Each day brings different market sellers @ the shops so very different than the usual high street selection. It is a friendly, vibrant area that is also full of unusual places to eat & drink....

Celebrating London's multi-cultural diversity and the abolition of the slave trade; the Notting Hill Carnival attracts around one million people each August over three days. Which makes it today one of the largest street festival in the world exhibiting the most epicurean mix of pulsing drums, spiced rum and jerk chicken. The Loud parade will instantly transport you from the... More

This area of London is just so great to walk through as it has a vibrantcy to it and a bohemian feel. The shops, cafes and restaurants are quirky and unique in their approach to the general public. Just have a wander or spend some time here but get a feel of the area when you are there. Not many... More

Overall: 4 Other comments: it's hard to pinpoint what makes Notting Hill so Nice, and still it really is, like the shops, or rather the variety. And also, as important, the starting point for Portobello Road Market. Location: 4 Offering: 4 Originality: 4 Presentation: 4 Atmosphere: 5 Service: 4 Cleanliness: 3 Price: 4 Price/value: 4

We rented a fabulously located apartment 2 mins walking distance from Portobello Road. Famous for its market Portobello also has great cafes, restaurants,pubs, boutique shops and an outstanding bakery. If you want to stay somewhere colourful with great amenities and atmosphere, but within walking distance of hyde park and a local tube station and somewhere not swarming with tourists, then... More

I used to live here back in 2011, for one year. I go back there often. This place is just amazing, an eternal memory in. Y mind: beauty and charming West London.

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.
