A day in Notting Hill

Looking for one of the city’s most iconic neighbourhoods? Notting Hill has been a key part of London’s pop-cultural explosion over the last 50 years, and at its heart you’ll find Portobello Market—the best place to start your day.

Portobello Road is home to the world’s largest antiques market (not to mention a pretty rainbow-coloured row of terraced houses). Get there early to snap up the best finds – you’ll still have time to grab a coffee and a croissant from Daylesford Organic on Westbourne Grove.

After a morning of treasure hunting, you might be feeling peckish. Luckily, Granger and Co. is close at hand. It’s a laidback restaurant, serving contemporary twists on Australian classics.

Stretch your legs around Notting Hill’s stuccoed streets, exploring the boutique shops and cafés – or even head south to the greenery of Holland Park.

Next up is The Electric Cinema, a charming building built in 1910 – it’s something of a Notting Hill icon, with its eye-catching architecture inside and out.

For dinner, The Ledbury is the place to be. This two-Michelin-starred restaurant offers cutting-edge contemporary cuisine – think beetroot baked in clay, and scallops in seaweed.
