Located to the west of central London, Notting Hill is mostly residential and you can see a number of imposing white houses and attractive terraces from the Victorian era there, as well as some lovely gardens. In some streets in Notting Hill the houses are painted entirely in different pastel shades. It is one of the most sought after areas in which to live in London.
Well known for its attractive restaurants and outdoor terraces, Notting Hill has a reputation for trendiness.
Also worth visiting: Portobello Market, the famous London antiques market; the Notting Hill Carnival, which is rich in colour and music and is a celebration of West Indian culture that takes place over three days towards the end of August each year.
