Great to walk around no matter the weather. I get lost looking at the colourful houses and beautiful English architecture, try to stray off the main roads and explore a little. Portobello road is amazing for any kind of brick-a-brac shopping or antiquing you want to do. It is PACKED on Saturday and the food markets have a great variety... More

I had to see this gorgeous area of London! The houses on some of the streets are painted in different colors and look pretty cool. Just catch the metro to Notting Hill Gate station and enjoy!

Portobello Road (Dire Straits!) and its shops and market: it differs completely from the Westminster atmosphere. Get the Notting Hill feeling. But you won't see the book store, nor the film stars, of course...

Notting Hill is one of the most beautiful areas in London. Portobello Market is lovely and has an intense artistic bohemian flair. It is more traditional and not so touristic like Camden Lock Market. Try to visit on a Saturday when there is a flea market going on.

Whether you're a lover of the 1999 same-titled film or not, Notting Hill is colourful, with a cute yet vibrant character that makes for a outing with a different feeling than most in London. The Portobello Road Market is fantastic to wander through; a bustling scene with scattered antique traders, fashion items and food that stretches on past colourful townhouses.

I walked through this beautiful and historic place. I had fish and chips in one of the local places. I then went shopping and but a beautiful bag that I have gotten a lot of compliments on.

For everybody that loves non touristic sites, Notting Hill is the place. Besides the traditional Mardi Gras / Carnival, the whole place is a permanent surprise in every corner. Every Saturday there is a Flea Market that is worthwhile to visit.Enjoy !!

but was really glad I did because the Saturday market was lively, fun, colorful, full of interesting people wandering from stall to stall. I lived in the nearby area of Kensington so had just walked to the outdoor market. Bought a few great books from a totally fascinating bookseller. Stayed most of the day just to share in the odd...

Great way to get away from the crazy hustle of downtown London. Small boutiques, great architecture, slow pace
