Nice trendy area near Kensington. Saturday market was a little disappointing though, just a big professional "flea market". Very full on a sunny day, with crowds pouring out of the Notting Hill Gate tube station. Good restaurants too.

I don't have this type of weekend market at home. So it was fun to spend an afternoon strolling the antiques shops, street stalls that sold accessories, second hand stuff, fresh food, and eating from the street foods. I had some freshly squeezed juice, some donuts and muffins and seafood paella! Food was not amazing but value for money! Amazing... More

We very much enjoyed perusing the street market on the Friday we were in this area. Very unique and well worth visiting when ready to see parts of London off the beaten tourist path. Also noteworthy was the specific architecture of many of the houses in this area as well as the melting-pot of area residents. Lovely.

.Notting Hill neighborhood beautiful and pleasant to visit. So different from London center. I was on at Sunday. A nice little market. Worth half a day or more. Many restaurants, shops and a pleasant atmosphere. It is worth visiting even without market.

It´s a nice place to visit. Calm with lovely houses. The main road has a lot of commerce. We went to olok for the library from the movie but we got there to find out that now it´s a food place.

Notting Hill is only famous because of the Carnival (not my cu of tea) and Hugh Grant's film. However if you enjoy loud music once a year and don't care about getting high on the smoke from the considerable amount of weed there, then go and have fun. I expect it's ok to live there, nice bars, convenient etc but... More

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.
