Spent an afternoon wandering around and we all felt it was nothing like we had expected. There are a few good shops, some lovely antiques shops and a few brightly coloured houses and upmarket houses - but otherwise the place felt down at heel generally and not as hip and arty as we had thought it would be.

Visited for quite a few hours on a visit to London. Loved the antique shops as well. The food was lovely can't remember the stall but the man was Spanish and made it in front of you in a lovely roll with egg, mushrooms and ham. You need a couple of hours or more here.

Notting Hill known for its wonderful small and colorful string of town houses, is a beautiful neighborhood in London. On weekends, you will find a long stretch of local market with stands selling food, antiques, paintings, and all sorts of things.

On Saturday we walk trough the neighborhood and here is a great street market. It was very delicious. There are a lot of souvenir shops and most of them are cheap so is the best place for shopping.

Notting Hill is a great place to visit. It's easy to get by underground. Colourful houses together with the Portobello Market make the place lovely. You can buy souvenirs, antiquities or just taste delicious pastries!

The Notting Hill area is a very interesting neighbourhood. The houses are unique and it is truly worth taking the time to come and see. We walked through on our way to visit The Hummingbird Bakery and to go to Portobello Rd Markets. It is a unique experience that some may not like but it worth coming to find out... More

We walked around Notting Hill on our way to and from the Portobello Road Market. It is full of charm and character, pretty houses, cute stores, and quaint restaurants.

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

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.
