Where do Holland Park and surrounding areas locals go?

Clarendon Cross

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

The Notting Hill Bookshop

The famous bookshop that Hugh Grant owns in the movie Notting Hill.

L Maison

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

Granger & Co

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


Dating back to 1897, this family-run garden centre has been supplying the Kensington and Chelsea residents for generations!

Fez Mangal

A bustling Turkish restaurant close to Ladbroke Grove Underground Station that cooks amazing Turkish BBQ'd meats. Great takeaway or fun with a few friends to eat in, as it's BYOB. If you're feeling hungry, get the special mix. Also the mezze starters are tasty too...actually everything is!


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

The Roof Gardens

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

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...

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.


The best pie and mash in West London - try the stewed eels! Perfect for a quick, cheap but tasty lunch.

Pizza East

Breakfast at Pizza East is great - everything you can expect to find on a breakfast menu and at a reasonable price.

Bluebelles of Portobello

One of the best breakfast hangs-out on Portobello Road, where you can sit outside and watch the world go by - plus fantastic eggs!!

Mr Falafel

Delicious Palestinian food in Shepherd's Bush Market - this place is an institution, having been there since the 1980s.

Westbourne Gardens

Springtime is beautiful in one of London's many garden squares!
