Notting Hill is one of London's most iconic neighbourhoods with people coming from far and wide to take in the tree lined streets with picture perfect colourful houses. We love finding the quirks of Notting Hill and there are plenty of things to see off the beaten track.
Follow our Tramble and day in Notting Hill for the best it has to offer.
Find Pavement Poetry
One of the quirks we love most about Notting Hill and this area of West London is the pavement poetry dotted around. Start at the Coronet for the first piece.
Our Tramble will take you to several pieces of pavement poetry but, if you want to see them all, follow this guide.
Take in Holland Park and the Kyoto Garden
Walk down Holland Park Avenue and turn into the exquisite Holland Park. First walk straight towards the Dutch Garden, which has plenty of sculptures to look at. Next head around the cafe to Holland Park House before finding the tranquil Kyoto Garden.
The Kyoto Garden has to be one of our favourite spots for some reflection in London and is a must visit for all.
Once you have spent some time in Holland Park get back to Notting Hill Gate and walk one of the most famous streets in the area. It boasts to be one of the largest antique markets in the world and has plenty of treasures and nik-naks to feast your eyes on.
beautiful streets and colourful houses
Walk to the end of Portobello Road and find Lancaster Road for a taste of the colourful houses Notting Hill is famous for.
The Museum of Brands
Just off Lancaster Road you will find the quirky Museum of Brands, Advertising and Packaging. You'll find plenty of oddities, campaigns from yesteryear and retro design, all under one roof for under a tenner.

Food and Drink in Notting Hill
There are plenty of spots to try in Notting Hill and the surrounds. Our favourite places to eat are Polpo, for its Venetian Tapas menu, Marianne, for fine dining, and the Portobello Garden for its Italian small meals.
To drink there is the notorious Churchill Arms, The Elgin or the Portobello Star. The Churchill Arms is a famous spot for tourists and locals with the overgrowing foliage on the outside. Try the Portobello Star for its fabulous gin and The Elgin for a more relaxed feel near Ladbroke Grove.
Notting Hill and the surrounds make for a perfect walking day out. We love the Trambles we have made in the area and hope you follow one to take in the best the area has to offer.
