14 Lovely Reasons Why Notting Hill Is The Place Of London Dreams

We’re going to try and get through this entire article without mentioning the carnival… ah shucks… messed it up in the first sentence. Honestly though, there is so much to do in this West London Wonderland: have a mooch around the markets; a jolly old tipple in a pretty little pub; or even just wander along the streets staring at other people’s houses with awe and envy. You may not be able to afford to actually live there, but it’s only a short stint on the Central Line before you can feast your eyes on the pastel-coloured paradise that is Notting Hill.


1. You can wander around the world famous Portobello Road Market…


2. And there are some really gorgeous pubs.
