Notting Hill in London

No reviews, be the first!

Immortalized on film as the setting for Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts’ frolics in the 1999 eponymous rom-com, Notting Hill (an area encompassing Ladbroke Grove, Portobello Road and parts of North Kensington) has lingered on to-do lists ever since, but there’s far more to this cosmopolitan hub than its sojourn on the big screen suggests.

Sandwiched in-between the affluent dwellings of Knightsbridge and Kensington, Notting Hill boasts the same stately elegance, with its rows of Victorian townhouses and cobbled side streets. Arguably the hippest district in West London, it’s here that the slick and stylish meet downtown cool, with vintage stores jostling for space next to designer boutiques and art students ducking into dimly lit bars, while designer-decked hipsters dine on sushi platters next door.
