Possibly most famous for throwing the annual Notting Hill Carnival (and a Richard Curtis film perhaps?), this neighbourhood offers visitors delights all year round, not just on one weekend. Notting Hill had something of a revival in the late 1980s and is now an affluent, trendy area. From its independent eateries to its eclectic mix of specialised shops, it’s always had close ties with the arts. Stay one of our hotels near Notting Hill and explore the markets and squares of this unique alternative enclave.
