It is colorful, nice catchy music, street food but definitely not suitable for families or children as is full of drunk people bumping into you, thieves about, people are nearly having s*x in the middle of the road, the whole place is stinking of weed and is rubbish everywhere, mountains of cans and plastic cups. The toilets are absolutely disgusting,... More

We visited notting hill one morning and had breakfast there then walked around. It is beautiful, the houses are different coulours, and it's a very charming sight. We walked by the shops and stands selling food, souvenirs and antiques and they had really beautiful items. Wonderful morning

This place is full of English charm. I wouldn't say it is a must, but of you have a spare afternoon, come here to spend it. The Portobello road is a lovely place, authentically English, full of comerciants, vintage stuff to sale and wonderful colored houses.

Whether you want to go shopping vintage, have a tea in a cosy lounge or just walk around to enjoy the vibe: Notting Hill is absolutely lovely! Loved the bright coloured doors of all the houses and the funny oldschool shops. Go in the morning for it will not be too crowdy yet.

Very interesting place to visit in London. The colored houses and the people on the streets of Portobello Road make you feel in a special town inside of London. It looks like a village inside the metropolis.

Notting hill is completely about picturesque streets and mega mansions, not many squats in sight these days, instead boutiques and cafes to sit in the sun and relax.

On a dry Saturday this is a must walk to in London. Through portobello the antiquities market you will find many wonders and vintage in a great atmosphere; throughout the colourful residential street of portobello where this market got its name from. Preferably Review the place for brunch in advance as it is full of poor tourists trap for food... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
