Notting Hill is also the shooting location of the movie with the same name. Look for the famous blue door and the travelling bookstore that inspired the bookstore in the... More

...but I didn't find it to be exceptional. If you have a couple of hours to kill, check out the Portobello Rd. Market. Whether you find something good to buy is probably hit or miss, but it's a lot of fun to look.

Take the tube to Notting Hill. Here you will find shops and curiosities for all ages, we were, 11, 16, 39 and 67 and we all enjoyed the visit. Some really nice shops and cozy places for coffee and something to eat.

Lovely neighbourhood with colourful houses and a unique personality. Loads of nice cafes and houses, pretty pictures everywhere. The Portobello Road market is a major draw.

The portobello market is a must do - many stalls with local eats and trinkets... We loved walking around and seeing the streets lined with multicoloured houses.

Notting Hill can be easily reached due to it's tube connections yet besides what you find on the main road (shops, restaurants, cafes) mainly for the locals, do not expect to find anything else interesting. OK, is also close to Portobello market, yet you will only see lots of well kept houses that increased in price astronomically since the '90s.... More

Dont expect to meet Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts at the park, but its a place that everyone should visit. Nice but not beautiful like the movie. Maybe it was fault of the sun, because in Sunny days is much more better.

This is one iconic, charming area of London, where you can also visit the Portobello Market. But the colored, picturesque streets are really beautiful.

What a beautiful district for a stroll. We went there on a Saturday Morning after a brunch at Portobello flee market. Its pretty much the cliche you know from the movies but walking around in person its something special and makes great for photos.

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.
