Notting Hill London – some essential information

Notting Hill is famous for it’s Portobello Road Market, which has been going since the 19th century. It was originally a food market and is now both an antique and fruit & vegetable market with it’s main day being Saturday. It is now considered to be the largest antique market in the UK and attracts many tourists week in week out.

During the 80’s the area was very run down and wasn’t considered a very good place to visit. Nowadays it is a highly influential and fashionable area with Victorian terraces attached to large Victorian townhouses. Real estate prices went up a lot in the past few years and if you want to rent an apartment here, you will need a high income or a rich daddy.

You can reach Notting Hill from the Notting Hill Gate underground station and if you come that way, make sure to visit George Orwell’s old house at the start of the market!

There are many places to visit in London and many of them are adjacent to one another. Notting Hill is right on the corner of Kensington Gardens, otherwise known as Hyde Park.
