20 Things To Do In Notting Hill | by Things to Do In London
What to See and Do in Notting Hill
From our friends at Things to Do in London we thought we’d share their hit list for the ever populur Notting Hill. Writer Jodie Taylor observes:
“Notting Hill found its fame in some unusual places; it’s sizzling carnival that sweeps through docile streets. An ode to the strong Caribbean community that resides largely in the area.
The other place where Notting Hill found its fame was, of course, the 90’s movie hit of its namesake; the blue door, the quaint portrayal of a folksy village within a city. And, of course, because Hugh Grant was pretty dishy back then, no?
To me, Notting Hill will always be synonymous with sun-lit afternoons spent chatting over beers, of the chaos of carnival, and of the hustle of a Portobello morning.”
