Did you catch the self-guided walking of Notting Hill that I created for you?
During the tour, I take you past some iconic landmarks and areas of interest in Notting Hill. However, there are none more famous than the iconic rainbow houses and pretty streets. People come from miles specifically to see and photograph them. I can see why – they’re gorgeous!
Instead of wandering through the streets aimlessly, I thought I’d tell you the specific streets in Notting Hill of where to see these colourful houses. Plus, I even show you the location of a very famous house used in a big blockbuster film.
To make it super easy for you, I’ve created a FREE map pinpointing where the prettiest streets are. Don’t forget to download yours once you’ve read the blog.
1. Lancaster Road
Lancaster Road is a short walk from the tube station and is the first set of colourful houses you’ll see on your route. How bright and beautiful are these?
2. St Lukes Mews
St Lukes Mews was the filming location for a few scenes in British rom-com, Love Actually and it gets tons of people flocking to the area to snap a picture of it. Remember that scene where Andrew Lincoln is telling Keira Knightly he loves her by pretending he’s a carol singer and showing her signs? That one. It’s so photogenic!
3. Westbourne Park Road
Another pretty street on the list is Westbourne Park Road. Did you know the famous blue door used in the Notting Hill film was located at 280 Westbourne Park Road?
4. Portobello Road (Market area)
As your walking through down Portobello Road and browsing the antiques you can’t miss the colourful facades that line the market.
5. Denbigh Terrace
Just as you exit Portobello Market you’ll see Denbigh Terrace on your left. It’s a very popular spot for Instagrammers so if you want a photograph outside I suggest you get there early or avoid weekends.
6. Portobello Road (just before Notting Hill Gate)
As you leave the market on the way to Notting Hill Gate Tube Station, Portobello Road continues to deliver some gorgeous houses to snap.
7. Farmer Street
Don’t jump on the tube just yet. Just behind the station are some of the prettiest streets in the area you won’t want to miss including these on Farmer Street…
8. Uxbridge Street
… and these on Uxbridge Street.
