I first wander past fabulous residences filling this district.
Residing in Notting Hill
Reaching Portabello Road, I start at one end and walk through the market, enjoying the sights, sounds, and smells. There is something for everyone here. And, there are great traditional commercial buildings lining the road.

At the end of the market, I walk back into the side streets of Notting Hill, finding colorful houses and the intriguing architecture of the mews houses, which are old stables, originally with living quarters above, that have been converted to houses, generally located on side streets or alleys.
Great use of color
Emerging from the side streets and alleys of the mews, I am once again in the land of grand Notting Hill residences.
Back on main streets
On my way out of the district, I pass by the high-end shops and restaurants of Notting Hill.
Shopping and dining
Notting Hill has a wide spectrum of activities to offer, from street food in the Portabello Market to renowned restaurants, from the stalls of the market to high-end shops, from living in the mews to Victorian townhouses. It is truly fun to wander through and see it all.
