London: Notting Hill (Attractions)

London: Notting Hill (Attractions)


Nearest Station: Notting Hill
Typical opening hours: 24/7 – Public areas

Well-known for the 1999 film starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts, Notting Hill is every bit as charming in person as it is on the big screen. Every corner of this area holds a surprise, and the houses in this expensive area are to die for.

Each year in August, Notting Hill is home to the world’s second-biggest carnival – Notting Hill Carnival – where London’s West Indian communities gather to put on a street festival that is a joy to experience and filled with fantastic photo opportunities.

Notting Hill is also very well-known for its shopping. More information is available on this aspect later in the shopping chapter of this guide.
