Took the tube to Nottinghill for a quick visit. Do not go here specifically for the movie or you will be disappointed but do go here if you want to see a lot of good shops and want to go for a stroll. We walked...More
If you like small boutiques, good local restaurants and to feel as though you are a local in a beautiful neighborhood then you will love Notting Hill. It’s easy to understand why it is in movies. Easy to get to by cab or tube or...More
We went to walk around in Notting Hill on a weekday so as to avoid the crowds. It's a lovely neighborhood with small shops and cafes, art galleries and amazing homes. If you are looking just for "Notting Hill" Movie scenes I imagine it will...More
Pretty cheesy with a poorly written script, my girlfriend insisted we watch it.
The chemistry between the two leads was bland and the lead male actor was insufferable.
I was bitterly disappointed that he didn’t die at the end.

So, my friend and I took the train to the Notting Hill Station, and then walked the 20 minutes or so to find this iconic door from the Hugh Grant & Julia Roberts film Notting Hill (1999). We were so disappointed to see that the...More
As our hotel was very close to Notting Hill, it was convenient to make a visit to this part of London.
Actually, we went around this part many times.
To view the beautiful houses (and expensive cars outside 😉)

We went to walk around in Notting Hill on a weekday so as to avoid the Portobello market and crowds. It's a lovely little neighborhood with small shops and cafes, art galleries and lovely little streets and, of course, the famous bookshop as well as...More
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.

Notting Hill is about 1.5 miles from Marble Arch and 2.5 miles from Piccadilly Circus. It has very good transport links to the main tourist attractions via London Underground and buses. It would be a lovely area to stay as it has many beautiful roads, some amazing parks and attractions to walk to. You are close to Paddington station for trains to both Windsor (30 minutes) and Bath (75 minutes). I would not suggest getting on a tour bus in London for either of these destinations but make your way by train. At Windsor there is an information point at the station and maybe for Bath buy a Rough Guide. You can find tours in both of these places by looking on the local Tourist Information websites. London is huge and Notting Hill is as central as you need to be.

About 15 to 20 minutes, I suppose. It is not very far. If you want to visit the market, it must be on a Saturday morning. I suggest you get there around 9am so that you have a better experience but be ready to spend the morning in this amazing place.
Now, about the film... The exteriors were filmed mostly on location, which means in Notting Hill and Portobello Road. If your wife is a Notting Hill movie fan, she will recognize some of these places from it:
- the Coronet Theatre (that was where the Grant's character watched the sci-fi movie staring Anna Scott);
- the Rosmead Gardens, where the characters break into after a birthday dinner party with friends;
- 91 Lansdown road, where the characters Bella and Max had William's sister birthday party with friends;
- Portobello Road market, the first scene (and an amazing place so be ready to do some shopping!);
- 142 Portobello Road, a shoe shop called Notting Hill, exactly where William's bookshop was supposed to be - people say it has never been a bookshop but that down the road there is one bookshop (new owners now), which has been a Travel Bookshop for about 30 years and that supposedly was an inspiration for the film;
- the tattoo shop shown in the movie (a drunk man with a tattoo 'I love Ken'?!?);
- William's house blue door (which is now actually black painted blue as the one-and-only blue one was sold in an auction);
- the coffee shop where William buys some orange juice and later some coffee;
- Tony's restaurant, now actually Portfolio Cards and Gifts.
Here are the addresses of the places mentioned above and a tour suggestion:
Coronet Theatre: 103 Notting Hill Gate (next to/near Notting Hill tube/metro station exit);
Rosmead Gardens: when at Coronet Theatre just walk down Notting Hill Gate road towards Holland Park tube/metro station, then turn right to Lansdowne Road and you will soon find Rosmead Road as it is the sixth on your left (those are private gardens, remember! ;) No trespassing!);
Lansdowne Road: turn left again from Rosmead Road onto Lansdowne Road and look for door number 91 (it will be on your left probably);
Portobello Road: from Lansdowne Road (walk along it), just turn left onto Ladbroke Grove and then turn right at Elgin Crescent - second on your right, turn onto Portobello Road - you will have the market if it is a Saturday morning and you will find a shoe shop called Notting Hill (William's bookshop in the movie) - if you want to visit the one that inspired William's you must turn back down Portobello Road a bit to Blenheim Crescent (right after Elgin Crescent) to find doors number 13 to 15;
The tattoo shop: Saint's Tattoo Parlour at 201 Portobello Road: go back to Portobello Road, turn left and look for door number 201;
The blue door: walk down the road from the tattoo shop and you will soon find Westbourne Park Road (it is the next road crossing Portobello's), turn left and then look for door number 280 (the blue door used to be there... and the door that is now painted in blue again by the new owners of the house is a new door which was once black);
The coffee shop: go back again to Portobello Road and cross straight over to find 303 Westbourne Park Road (you will not find chairs and tables outside but that is the place!);
Tony's restaurant: walk down Portobello Road, under The Westway and straight on, then turn right onto Golborne Road where you will find door number 105, near/the junction with Bevington Road.
Oh, by the way, the expensive Japanese food restaurant where the characters have their meal is Nobu, which is at Metropolitan Hotel, Old Park Lane W1; the Ritz hotel where the interviews are made is at 150 Piccadilly; the Savoy Hotel (where the press conference takes place) in on the Strand (1 Savoy Hill); and the wedding reception is at the Zen Garden in Bayswater (31-35 Craven Hilll Gardens).
I can send you a map if you want.
Hope you two have a fabulous visit to London! Have fun!
