Beautiful Sights to See on a Notting Hill Walking Tour

15

Aug

When I visited London, I stayed in Notting Hill and loved it! There are lots of great cafes and restaurants to eat at, and it was such a beautiful place to walk around to catch a subway or bus to go sightseeing. And I definitely recommend taking some time to sightsee around the area, too. If you get a chance to visit, these are some of the beautiful sights you can see on a Notting Hill walking tour!

(And head’s up, there are LOTS of photos in this post! It’s just such a beautiful area that I couldn’t stop taking photos)

Beautiful Sights to See on a Notting Hill Walking Tour

Shopping in Notting Hill

Portobello Road has lots of shops, and the main market is on the weekend. I definitely recommend checking it out because there’s so much selection! There are lots of food vendors (everything smelled sooo good), vintage clothes, gourmet cheese, antiques, and much more. The market is a great way to get a true Notting Hill experience.

Even if you can’t make it to Portobello Road Market on the weekend, you can still do lots of shopping in the stores! They had some pretty cool antique shops that I loved checking out, and I did get a pretty antique teapot.

If you’re a fan of the movie “Notting Hill,” the Travel Book Shop is a must on a Notting Hill walking tour! It’s the store that was used as Hugh Grant’s book store in the movie, and they have the movie poster in the window so you can’t miss it.

Colorful houses in Notting Hill

You can see the bookstore from the movie “Notting Hill,” and you can also see the famous house with the blue door! (It is someone residence, so be respectful if you take photos).

There are soooo many beautiful and colorful homes you can see on your Notting Hill walking tour! If you have time, I recommend leisurely walking all around the neighborhood to see different types of homes because there’s quite a variety of architecture and colors. But if you don’t have a lot of time, you can’t really go wrong with any streets you check out.

It was pretty grey most days I was in London, but I recommend doing your walking tour of Notting Hill on a sunny day if you can so the colorful houses really brighten up! 🙂

And if you get hungry walking around, these are the restaurants and bakeries I recommend: Biscuiteers, Fabrique Bakery, Gail’s Bakery (I grabbed breakfast here a few times!), The Churchill Arms (delicious Thai food in a cool historic pub), Farm Girl, and Electric Diner (delicious food and cool retro diner vibes).

    I can’t wait to visit Notting Hill and check out all these beautiful landmarks. I love colorful houses – here in New England, Martha’s Vineyard is known for the Gingerbread houses.

      Colorful houses are the best! Martha’s Vineyard has been on my list for a while, so I’ll have to visit and check out the houses soon!
