The Basics

Diverse Notting Hill is one of London’s most popular and picturesque neighborhoods, packed with rarefied, Victorian terrace houses; filled with lively markets, pubs, and restaurants; and home to a thriving Caribbean community. Notting Hill was put on the international map following the now-classic 1999 romantic comedy starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, and these days tourists flock to the area to spot filming locations, from the antiques market on Portobello Road to the blue door at 280 Westbourne Park Road. Other local highlights include historical movie theaters, centuries-old pubs, and unusual museums.

Beyond self-led explorations, there are numerous ways to get to know Notting Hill better. Hop-on hop-off bus tours provide neighborhood overviews, while themed walking tours (from antique crawls to music-themed itineraries) spotlight different aspects of the area.

Amazing tour!
This tour was awesome! Our guide was so engaging and friendly. He gave a thorough history of the neighborhood and buildings we passed by. It was drizzling right when the tour started but that didn't dampen the mood. I definitely recommend this tour, no matter how you're traveling. Also, it really wasn't too much walking and there were lots of stops so don't let that keep you from joining.

Walking tour of Notting Hill , Rock Stars haunts and Film locations
Konrad was very knowledgeable, personable and genuine, weaving his own experiences of living in and around the area into his own well researched walking tour. The pace was just right, we felt relaxed and unrushed but equally in no way bored. Fantastic for anyone at all interested in 60s/70s London music scene - Jagger, Hendrix, Marley, Faithfull, Virgin Records etc.

The Notting Hill, Bridget Jones, Love Actually & Four Weddings Tour of London
Although we weren’t originally aware that this would be a walking tour, touring London on foot and via the Underground (train) was not only a great way to get in some exercise, but also a fun way to explore “hidden” or off the beaten path sites of the city. Our guide Kevin did a phenomenal job telling us stories of London’s history, taking us through vibrant areas such as Borough Market and Notting Hill, and pointing out locations where some famous movies set in London have been filmed.

Jordan was our guide and he was fantastic. He even supplied typical London weather!!!!...;). It was a great tour and very informative and enjoyable. We highly recommend this for anyone who wants a more informative tour over a quick...”here’s this, there’s that” tour that is just cookie cutter. You will not be disappointed.

When to Get There

Notting Hill is worth visiting all year round. If you wish to browse the antiques stalls on Portobello Road, avoid visiting on Sundays, when the market closed. The area is at its liveliest at the end of August, when the Notting Hill Carnival is held.
