Weekends spent strolling around Notting Hill and the bustling Portobello Market. This part of London has such a unique charm and relaxed atmosphere. Everywhere you look there is colour, from the winding Portobello Road shops, to residential side streets where there are rows of multicoloured houses, the perfect back drop for a photo! Although it’s respectful to not stand on the steps on the homes as some are private properties! It would be one of my chosen locations to live in London if I had a choice (and the money to do so!)
If you love the film ‘Notting Hill’ like I do, there are endless locations to visit where filming took place, including the ‘blue door’ to Will Thacker’s flat at 280 Westbourne Park Road and the coffee shop on the corner where he bumps into Anna Scott.
For food, I can highly recommend Eggbreak, a lovely cafe tucked away behind the Main Street, Notting Hill Gate. There isn’t any need to book according to their website. Although it’s small, we walked in and were luckily seated without having to wait. I probably should have tried one of their ‘egg’ dishes whilst I was there and because of their name, but instead I opted for the cornflake fresh toast with caramelised bananas, blueberries and syrup. No regrets though, it was amazing!
