Why not explore the nearby areas of Holland Park, Westbourne Park, Ladbroke Grove, Bayswater, Kensington, Paddington, Maida Vale, Shepherd's Bush, Earls Court and West Kensington

"The crescents and gardens around Ladbroke Grove owe their design to the Hippodrome, a racecourse that was built here in 1837, with the roads following the original course of the track."

Lively and lined with trendy independent shops, bars and restaurants, it's no wonder that Portobello Road is so popular!

David Roberts

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

What locals say about Notting Hill

  1. Lovely architecture

  2. Breakfast at Bluebells on the top of Portobello Road is a weekend habit I can't seem to kick!

  3. I reckon you can't beat Pizza East for an amazing Sunday brunch, buzzing atmosphere and a bit of celeb spotting. It's definitely the trendiest hangout spot for locals.

  4. Despite having lived in Notting Hill for 18 years, I've just got a dog and discovered the joy of escaping for a little peace and quiet in one of the many hidden parks in and around the area. Some of these are reserved for residents, but Holland Park and Little Wormwood Scrubs are open to all and are particularly beautiful.
