Worst mall ever. Not worth the cisit. Most stores were closed as in locales are empty. There is H&M and Zara but awful selection. Avoid and don't waste your time. Inexpensive souvenirs in the street near the Bayswater Station underground so that was worth it.

We were staying nearby and expected a shopping mall with a variety, instead it is a rather empty building with a few shops. Rather sad considering the history of the department store that occupied the site for years.

the last landmark from a walk up Bayswater from the station is this architectural 2-floor shopping centre, sliding but surviving, rephasing to medium-income with the odd iconic brand should see it through...people will flock when it rains

We decided to take a walk to see the center and hopefully spend some money. The building is beautiful and we had high hopes. Disappointment was an understatement, my Children said it looked like The Mary Celeste.

When I first moved to W2 in 2002, I would regularly visit Whiteleys and it was a great shopping mall on my doorstep. I have not been for many years as no longer live in the area. Last time I was there the exciting cafe Anglais had opened and was a great lace to eat. I visited in December for... More

10 years ago this place had a great variety of stores and had a nice buzz of people. I did a fair amount of shopping here as I lived right near Bayswater. I had a business meeting here the other morning and was surprised to see how sad the place looked. Most of the stores I knew were gone and... More

As a shopping centre its certainly not the best in London but it has a range of shops from some high street names. But look away from that it has still got the style and awe of what great department stores was like. The marble floors the sweeping staircase is still there to remind of how shopping used to be...

Staying in Notting Hill

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.
