Hillgate Village

Colourful houses and elegant roads in sought-after Notting Hill

"Adjoining Hyde Park, Kensington Palace and its gardens offer a beautiful backdrop for days out in the sun."

Rebecca Boon

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

Stuart Bennett

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

Portobello Market

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

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...


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


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.

Granger & Co

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

Royal Albert Hall

A great piece of architecture completed in 1871 and famous for holding the BBC Proms annually each summer since 1941.

The Roof Gardens

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

The Shed

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

Beach Blanket Babylon

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

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!

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.

Kitchen & Pantry

The best chai tea and full English breakfasts!

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.

Electric Diner

You can't beat the lemon meringue pie at the Electric Diner on Portobello Road!

Kensington central Library
Culture Kids music classes are like no other as each class is based on one of more than 40 different lesson plans. There is a different theme each week and not one of the classes is repeated within the school year. During the class the children listen and play along to music look at flash cards and photographs explore toys and props dance sing dress up read stories and do role play which all adds up to a fun packed 45 minute session. We also use a variety of different instruments in class and again many are native to the countries that the children are learning about. Culture Kids music classes are a sensory explosion! A child's brain is like a sponge the more information you fill it with the more it will absorb. You are never too young to learn through fun!
