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!

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 W11

  1. I love morning strolls around Holland Park.

  2. Great local shops and a village feel.

  3. Lovely architecture

  4. Holland Park is calmer than the rush of central London, but still has everything you need and want around you!! And easy to get to anywhere, thanks to having most tube and bus lines around.

  5. I love the walking to the market. Every time I come back with a small treasure.

  6. I love Holland park because there is a sweet atmosphere. It's an amazing quiet borough, it's like a dream come true for me to live here since my French childhood, because yes I'm French and London always fascinates me!

  7. 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 London locations is unbeatable as it is served by 3 tube lines (Central, circle, district) and plenty of bus options to Westfield, south Kensington, Victoria, kings cross and more.

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
