Now I know the reason why so many films are set in Notting Hill. Picturesque cobblestoned streets, rustic Victorian townhomes, vintage shops and the famed Portobello Road Market earn this West London neighborhood its cinematic credentials. Notting Hill is also best known as host to the world’s second biggest carnival. The Portobello Road Market, operating on weekends throughout the year witnessing bustling crowds of all kinds.
It’s a very unique neighborhood no wonder it’s difficult not fall for its charms. Notting Hill is at peak during weekends when the markets are in full swing and is best to explore on foot to get the feel.
