Notting Hill, London

4.3
The home of the diverse Notting Hill Carnival and the popular Portobello Market, Notting Hill has transformed from a neighborhood of immigrant housing run by slumlords to the home of powerful politicians such as David Cameron. These days, many visitors know the area from the Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant romantic comedy of the same name, where its distinctive white-trimmed rows of houses provide a backdrop for the couple. The neighborhood has a thriving art community and is known locally for the alternative culture found at its restaurants, bars, and shops.  Take a look at our London trip itinerary maker site to schedule your visit to Notting Hill and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • I marvel to visit this beautiful antiques market, go on Saturday morning, I told the rest of days also there is something, but the best day is Saturday, is a wonderful walk through the crowd between the antiques stalls.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
