About the tour

Come with me to visit one of London's chicest and most 'instagrammable' neighbourhoods which was immortalised in the 1990's romcom with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. As we wander around the area we shall see the book shop that inspired the one in the film and a few other movie locations too. Today Notting Hill is a very affluent district as well as being really diverse and multiethnic. Every year in August it holds one of the world's largest street parties -the Notting Hill Carnival. I used to go to school on Portobello Road in the 80s so I'll be the perfect guide to show you around my childhood neighbourhood and once restrictions are eased in London we'll be able to visit parts of this vibrant and colourful shabby chic flea market. This is a really leisurely stroll off-the-beaten path to explore this charming and delightful gem of West London. Join me, it'll be fun!

It was interesting to see all the lovely houses at the beginning of the tour, and to compare with those later in Portobello Road. Lovely area, not too touristy. Made me want to visit one day and watch the film Notting Hill again.
