The Basics

Diverse Notting Hill is one of London’s most popular and picturesque neighborhoods, packed with rarefied, Victorian terrace houses; filled with lively markets, pubs, and restaurants; and home to a thriving Caribbean community. Notting Hill was put on the international map following the now-classic 1999 romantic comedy starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, and these days tourists flock to the area to spot filming locations, from the antiques market on Portobello Road to the blue door at 280 Westbourne Park Road. Other local highlights include historical movie theaters, centuries-old pubs, and unusual museums.

Beyond self-led explorations, there are numerous ways to get to know Notting Hill better. Hop-on hop-off bus tours provide neighborhood overviews, while themed walking tours (from antique crawls to music-themed itineraries) spotlight different aspects of the area.

Emily was wonderful! She was right on time, and, honestly It felt a lot like a good friend was showing me around her town. She was very knowledgeable and particularly helpful in planning the rest of my stay in London. I was able to get a high-level overview of some important sights and some in-depth exposure to more quaint and charming areas like Covent Garden and Notting Hill. She also taught me how to navigate the tube system :) Highly recommend for first-timers in London!

I thought the tour guide was informative and interesting. We had to depart the tour for a restroom break and were unable to rejoin it. We had a fantastic time in Portobello Road.
