Chances are, if you’ve scrolled through Instagram, you’ve caught a glimpse of the beautiful colorful buildings in Notting Hill in London. When planning our London itinerary, Notting Hill was on the top of my list. It is known to be a charming and affluent part of West London located north of Kensington. We stayed by Kensington and it took us about 30 minutes to get there. It even has a famous movie that takes place there, also called “Notting Hill”, which is on my weekend agenda. Spring is a beautiful time to visit because the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. Notting Hill is so charming that I couldn’t stop taking pictures. This is why I dedicated a full blog post to it.

How To Get There: I would recommend Ubering as the prices are a lot more reasonable than a taxi, BUT don’t make the mistake we made. We just putting Notting Hill in as our destination and were dropped off in the outskirts of it. We didn’t have WiFi, so we had to search for WiFi to find another Uber to get to the areas we wanted to see. We ended up putting Farm Girl in as our destination and this ended up being a good central destination.

What To Do/See:

Have A Plan: As I mentioned above, we were dropped off in the outskirts. As we walked, we did start seeing some beautiful flats and luckily were able to pick up WiFi. I would highly recommend researching which areas you want to go to. Our visit started off disappointing. I thought it would be good to just stroll, but that did not work out for us. There are a ton of Pinterest walking guides.

As I mentioned above, we were disappointed at first. As we left, I spotted a whole street of colorful buildings and this made the trip worth it. A lot of these buildings are cattycorner to Portobello Road, which is is a whole street of gorgeous buildings. You will see everything from rainbow buildings to gorgeous hot pink front doors. I would love to live there.

I could see the Portobello Market being a great destination on a weekend.

Churchill Arms: Although we didn’t have time to see this spot, it’s on the top of my must visit list when we go back.

Farm Girl: Although we didn’t eat in Notting Hill, I’ve heard great things about this restaurant. I want to try it next time we go.

Is a visit to Notting Hill worth it? I would say yes, if you have at least 3 days in London. To fully enjoy it, you should spend at least a half day there. Stay tuned, I will being sharing my first Paris post next week then a full guide to London in the next few weeks.

    So cute! I love that little flower shop. Wish you could’ve done Portobello on a weekend! It was one of my favorite things. They have SO much! I found amazing vintage leather, books, and cool souvenirs.

      Thank you so much. Ahhh I wish. I watched the movie, “Notting Hill” on Friday and saw clips of the market on the weekend. It looked amazing. There wasn’t much going on during the week. Too cool, we will have to add it to our list for next time. We got there too late on Saturday to stop by.

    How gorgeous! I love those fresh flower stands. Notting Hill has been on my bucket list, mainly because I love the movie, haha. But your photos are convincing me even more that we need to plan a trip here! I love all the colorful buildings. Great tip for Ubering too! I’ve done that plenty of times…just putting in a general location and not an exact address. It never works out, haha. I’ll use Farm Girl as a destination! Thanks for the tip!

      That flower stand was beautiful! Ahhh you need to visit Notting Hill, it is soo lovely. I would recommend going on a weekend, apparently the market is amazing on Saturday. Ohh no, it’s so frustrating when you put in the location wrong and cannot change it.
