Chic and upmarket neighbourhood with lots of fashionable shops and various eateries. Takes about 20 mins to walk to Portobello Market, but the walk is made less painful with nice things to see along the way.

This is a quaint area for shopping, and of course drinking. It's nothing particularly special, but that makes it special. It's just a cool area to stroll around in. I found many little shops and local bars to visit with a nice mix of travelers and local hipsters!

I wouldn't say it's an essential stop for your one-week visit to London, but the long, extensive, very-varied Portobello Road Market is a fun way to stroll, browse the vendors and the stores, people-watch, and eat a little here and a little there along the way. Near the far end, there's a food court of sorts where I enjoyed a... More

This area is really fun on Saturdays, at the Portobello antique market/flea market/food fest. But go early! By late morning the crowd is so thick that you can hardly move, much less browse the stalls.

This neighborhood comes alive on weekends and on weekdays at night. There are plenty of shops and restaurants and people passing by. I enjoy walking along Portobello road and checking out the stores. If the weather is nice this makes for an excellent afternoon.

Nice place to live. Beautiful houses. Portobello road was a bit to busy. Probably due to the Saturday. Nice shops.

I was completely captivated when visiting Notting Hill......which is now one of my most desirable areas in London. Both charming and cosmopolitan... and you can find absolutely everything from world-famous events and eateries to cutting-edge galleries and theatres. We did spend our Saturday morning browsing the extensive Portobello Market, the antique stalls were nearly a kilometre long and the market... More

My primary reason for visiting Notting Hill was because I am a huge fan of the movie Notting Hill with Hugh Grant. However, Notting Hill is more than just the famous movie title. It's a charming place that is well worth the visit. I recommend a long walk in Notting Hill just to absorb the atmosphere, some tea at one... More
