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

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

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


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.

L Maison

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

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...

The Shed

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

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.

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!


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

"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.

  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.
