Notting Hill Gate

Bustling shops, restaurants and bars in a part of West London that never sleeps

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

Rebecca Boon

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

Mark Nockles

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

"Notting Hill Gate is a wonderful living location. It is peaceful, safe and plenty to do! Portobello Road is just in walking distance, offering plenty of small boutique shops and bar/restaurants that you can't find on the typical high streets. Hyde Park is just off the main street which will always be your weekend relaxation hotspot (if you cant think of anywhere else to go on top of your head)! Its connectivity to central ... more

  1. About Notting Hill Gate

    Notting Hill Gate is one of the main thoroughfares of Notting Hill, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Historically the street was a location for toll gates, from which it derives its modern name. At Ossington Street / Kensington Palace Gardens, the Bayswater Road becomes Notting Hill Gate, continuing westward until it becomes Holland Park Avenue, just before it reaches Ladbroke Grove. Notting Hill Gate is distinct from Notting Hill, although the two are often confused. Notting Hill Gate is home to a variety of stores, restaurants, cafés and estate agents as well as more specialist stores which include rare records and antiques, as well as two historic cinemas as well as also several bars and clubs. Notting Hill Gate is the site of Notting Hill Gate tube station which is on the Central, District and Circle lines. This area is often packed with tourists heading to the nearby Portobello Road market.
