Notting Hill is a district in West London, located north of Kensington within the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea (with eastern sections of Westbourne Grove merging into the City of Westminster). It is a vibrant, trendy area. Casual cafes line bohemian Portobello Road, famed for its busy market selling antiques and vintage fashion. Filmgoers relax in posh armchairs at the Electric Cinema. High-end restaurants, brunch spots and upscale boutiques cluster around Westbourne Grove.
Notting Hill is also known for being a cosmopolitan neighbourhood, hosting the annual Notting Hill Carnival and Portobello Road Market where huge crowds whose parades and calypso music reflect the area’s Caribbean roots.
