Portobello Road - Notting Hill
Portobello Road has the largest antiques market in the world and people come from all over the world to visit it.
This famous road begins at Notting Hill and is full of shops full of antiques, retro, vintage and second hand record and clothes shops.
Walk straight down and cross over Westbourne Grove and there are a variety of antique shops and cafes.
Further on is the famous open-air Portobello Market.
It's a very 'Arty' area of London full of lovely old pubs and chic and trendy cafes and restaurants and is often used as a film location for films such as 'Notting Hill'.
The famous 'blue door' in the film Notting Hill has gone. It was auctioned off at a Christie's sale in London and soon after the words R.I.P. blue door appeared next to the new black door.
The bookshop where Hugh Grant worked is still at No 13 Blenheim Crescent, W11 and opposite (at No 4 Blenheim Crescent), is the famous Books for Cooks bookshop.
At the back of the shop is a small cafè and upstairs lessons in cooking are held throughout the year.
Popular Spanish restaurants and delicatessens such as Garcia are great to pop into to stock up with Mediterranean food. Garcia also have a small restaurant next door where you can enjoy freshly cooked Spanish food.
Further along are the many trendy shops of Portobello Arcade which connect to Ladbroke Grove. The popular Portobello Green Fitness Club is also here. Just a few yards away is a large Spanish school and another popular Spanish restaurant.
Nearby Goldbourne Road is popular for Caribbean, Algerian, Moroccan and Portuguese shops and there are some great Portuguese cafes where you can enjoy delicous coffee and cakes.
