Neighborhood Shopping
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.  To visit Notting Hill and other attractions in London, use our London trip builder.

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.
