Markets, a carnival and a movie of the same name, Notting Hill is one of London’s most vibrant neighborhoods, and a delight to visit. This area in north west London offers some of the city’s most interesting shopping and browsing. The Shops of Notting Hill range from Westbourne Grove’s upscale boutiques to colorful vintage and antique shops on Portobello Road. Bookshops and record shops, cafes and bars, there is something for everyone. A visit is a day well spent strolling the streets, admiring shopfronts and soaking up the local culture. My day started in Westbourne Grove with a lovely breakfast at Daylesford with Siobhan Ferguson. Inspiring author and photographer, Siobhan’s best-selling Pretty City London is a beautiful guide book to London’s most photogenic neighborhoods. Of course she had plenty of tips to share. After breakfast I explored the shops on Westbourne Grove and its side streets. Then my route took me on a discovery of Kensington Park Park Road, Portobello and Golborne Roads. These are some of the highlights of the shops of Notting Hill.
