Exploring Notting Hill

Notting Hill has been top of my London must-see list for a long time. I went to see the carnival years ago, but other than that, I haven’t really ever experienced Notting Hill and Portobello Market. The area is famous for it’s beautiful, painted houses and it’s idyllic streets. On Saturday, I went to visit my friend Leanne in London and we had a touristy day, ticking some places off our London bucket lists. We spent the first part of the day in Notting Hill, taking photographs and having street food for lunch at Portobello Market. For today’s post, I’m going to showcase some of the photos I took whilst we were walking the streets of this corner of Kensington & Chelsea.

I can think of 3 words to describe the houses in Notting Hill: colourful, neat and delightful. There was one particular pastel pink house, that would definitely be my dream future home! Of course I had to get a photo in front of it. A big thank you to Leanne for taking it for me.

This next house, I would quite happily own too! The pink door, the cute door number and the cherry blossom in front of the property, make it so dreamy!

Portobello Road itself was bustling with tourists! There were so many people walking to see the iconic row of coloured buildings.

The famous Hummingbird Bakery on Portobello Road was very popular as well. Leanne stopped to purchase a cupcake and I couldn’t resist capturing a photo of the adorable little cakes.

Portobello Market is really quite big! At the opposite end of Portobello Road to the bakery and the well known painted buildings, you find the street food market. I had a vegetable quesadilla from the Mexican food stall, which was delicious!

After Saturday, I can see why Notting Hill is such a hit with tourists and Londoners! It’s such a pretty area of the city.
Have you ever been to Notting Hill?
Thanks for reading my blog today.

    How adorable are those pastel houses? We have a few in Portsmouth and they always brightens my day when I see them.
    What did you think of Hummingbird? Did their cakes live up to the hype?
