So, first of all, you have to go a while in to get to the place where the market is held, and the best day to see how it looks like is Sunday. The neighborhood is wonderful, and you can just walk of the main road to see some beautiful houses and green areas. The movie set, the blue door... More

Totally guilty of seeking out the town due to my never ending love for the film, but if you are looking to go out of the city Notting Hill is the place. A quick ride on the tube and you are in a posh, charming pocket of London. Great cafes, boutiques, and very dog friendly. It was our whole group's... More

There are more reasons to visit this beautiful residential area northwest of the center of London - not just link to a successful film of the same name! The area is full of lavish private apartments and county house, but also an element of bohemian shops and bustling markets. There is some resemblance to New York's Soho district, but this... More

This event takes place over two days at the end of August every year.

This year a million people were estimated to have turned up (fewer on the second... More

Can't help but shuffle down this road through Notting Hill singing this 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks' song. It is a charming, country's village style of area that although is obnoxiously pricey, it is worth the visit to browse the quirky shops, little pubs and of course Hugh Grant's Travel Bookshop from the "Notting Hill' film. I have been here twice -... More

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
