Notting Hill is famous for a number of reasons but maybe the three most well known are: 1. The Carnival 2. The Portobello Market 3. The film (movie) Notting Hill with Julia Roberts etc. It started toward the latter part of the 19th century when a bunch of aristocrats got together and decided to develop mostly farmland into a luxury...

The area is peaceful, posh and full of vintage, classic old timers parked on the corners of the street. I spent my whole day there feeling like I was in some kind of British movie or something. it's a must see.

I had the pleasure and the privilege to stay in Notting Hill for 40 days when I first arrived in London, moving from the US. I stayed in one of the neighborhood's most beautiful area's: Pembridge Square. With its private garden astonishingly well kept, it feels like fairy tale territory, right in the middle of a very busy area.

Nice, portobello road is interesting, good restaurants, good book shops, but if your in London just a week or two there are so many more interesting places to visit. Nice houses, good when the carnival is on, but don't venture further than Ladbroke Grove after dark. Twice had my car broken into in that area, and less desirable people hang... More

We enjoyed visiting this part of London and even came back to another visit before the flight home. It's a very different area of the city, full of special atmosphere ,nice pubs,restaurants, shops and of course there is the famous Portobello Market. You can still find the bookshop from the Notting Hill movie. Don't miss it this area .

Definitely worth a visit if in London, the market has a great selection, from vintage books to antiques to vintage clothing to some great street food.

Populated by tourists from all around the world,the streets are very congested and similar markets can be seen and visited in many cities all around the world. One movie made the place world famous and now it's one of the musts of your London visit.

Noting hill is somehow a very different area in London. Perhaps the most beautiful and eye catching place. Very beautiful backstreets and gardens. The 16 years old movie "notting hill" remains in your mind. You can find that book store in Portobelo Road. There is a famous market there as well as many restaurants and bars.

I have lived here before, and Nottinghill provides a homey kind of idyllic maybe even romantic setting ..lower buildings as tiny townhouses, lots of people and lovely small businesses - you get a more personal shopping experience, and I guess you can feel the quarter i real and not just for tourist or businessmen. I live myself in a privileged... 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.
