Notting Hill is an upmarket at times rather expensive neighbour in the city - one where you can aspire to live one day. A place which has a movie named after it has to be classy - no? We went there a couple of times for the Carnival that happens in the month of August and its easily the biggest... More

Wonderful to walk around the neighborhood and study the various cultures. The colorful buildings, many restaurants, coffee cafes, and interesting little streets off the main. Unfortunately we were running late and the Portobello Market was closing so we only got to see a small part of it. Would love to go back.

We decided to visit the Notting Hill market, but it was so incredibly busy that we really didn't enjoy ourselves, and didn't stay long. We were very happy to get out of the crush! Will have to go back one day for a proper look when the markets aren't on!

Questo quartiere è veramente adorabile..giardini privati, case vittoriane variopinte, portoni colorati, negozi vintage..assolutamente da vedere..se passate di sabato, lungo la via dell’omonimo mercatino Portobello si possono fare veramente degli ottimi acquisti mentre se capitate a fine agosto è interessante da vedere il carnevale This neighborhood is really adorable .. private gardens, colorful Victorian houses, colored doors, vintage shops .. a...

Took Big Bus Tour to Notting Hill, West London. Great place to spend time chilling out & people watching. Plenty of restauranrs and bars. Quirky back streets. Found myself singing some of the songs from the movie of the same name.

We attended the 'Kids Day' on Sunday at the 2014 Nottting Hill Carnival - it was one of the worst experiences. It is a very poorly organised carnival. Although the website states it was open from 9am and we arrived at 10.30am, we later found out from speaking to the police that the actual event/floats did not start until 12.30.... More

Lovely leafy area of the city with beautiful architecture and Georgian terraces of painted houses. A wonderful area of London to walk and take in the cafe culture. Notting Hill Gate and Portobello Road are lively and fascinating places to explore

This is a very good place: lively, nice. It is obvious there is a good community. I would be happy if I could live there.

Notting Hill is one of the most beautiful areas of London. Famous for its white and pastel coloured terraced houses and the world famous Portobello Market, it has the wonderful atmosphere of a village where everybody knows each other and greet each other on the street, locals, market traders and shop and bar/cafe staff. If you go on a Monday-Thursday,... More
