Notting Hill

Fashionable, vibrant, desirable - Notting Hill is one of the most popular neighbourhoods in London

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

David Roberts

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

Stuart Bennett

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

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

Local resident

"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."

August 2014

Stuart

"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."
