With its colorful Victorian houses, Notting Hill is a quaint and colorful area located in West London in the district of Kensington et Chelsea. The district owes its fame to its famous brocante in Portobello which is held on Friday and Saturday, but also in its carnival true festival of colors which celebrates the Caribbean culture.
Do not hesitate to get lost to discover decoration shops, charming houses with their private gardens or even pubs with a so British atmosphere. You can take wonderful photos here, especially in spring when the magnolias and cherry trees are in bloom.
