Holland Park

Parkland at the heart of prestigious and attractive roads

"From jewellery to dresses, Portobello Market has it all..."

Neil Cunningham

"Grade II* listed The Royal Crescent is typical of the stucco-fronted properties in Holland Park, which makes the area highly sought-after."

Annabelle Bent

"In contrast to the Westfield development, Shepherd's Bush has some lovely period properties."

Where do Holland Park locals go?


Eggs as many ways as you can imagine... This restaurant is particularly good for brunch and it's close to Notting Hill Underground Station too.

Harper and Tom's

Pick up beautiful blooms all year round from this local florist's kiosk. There is also a store on Clarendon Road...

Portobello Market

You'll come across some quirky finds in this vibrant and busy market!

The Scarsdale Tavern

One of London's best-kept secrets. Great for a drink after work or a weekend watering hole...

Beach Blanket Babylon

Great outdoor space for a couple of cocktails and lovely food in the crypt restaurant.

The Hummingbird Bakery

Best cupcakes on the planet! The famous Red Velvet was born here. Many other cupcake companies have tried to copy them, but they never come close to Hummingbird's.

K West Hotel & Spa

Frequented by celebrities, this out-of-the-way hotel has an amazing spa and a glam rock inspired afternoon tea too!


Breakfast doesn't get much better (and healthier...) than this!

The Shed

British food from the farm. Lots of fresh dishes served at lunch and dinner in rustic surroundings.

Clarendon Cross

A great collection of boutique shops, including L Maison, Cowshed, The Cross and Summerill & Bishop.

L Maison

In the heart of Clarendon Cross, it's always great to stop in here to view the unique furniture and home accessories.

Kitchen & Pantry

The best chai tea and full English breakfasts!

The Grocer on Elgin

Our village grocer owned by Australian Ashley Sumner. Inside freshly prepared food with an Aussie influence - you can even pick up Australian treats like Tim Tams!

Granger & Co

Arguably the most fashionable breakfasts in Notting Hill, with regulars including David Beckham and Harry Enfield!

The Roof Gardens

An oasis on a roof top - it's certainly an unusual place to find a garden, complete with ducks and flamingos!
