A couple of weeks ago, I visited Notting Hill with my cousin to spend the day there and explore the streets of Notting Hill and Portobello Road. This post wasn’t actually planned but I had a tonne of photos from the day so I thought I’d compile the best ones and share them in a blog post. There are loads of cute spots in Notting Hill to stop and take photos so naturally that is deffo what we did when exploring the beautiful area!
Firstly, we got off the tube station and was strolling along the side roads following the crowd, as everyone was literally heading to the famous streets of Notting Hill and Portobello, we had a pit stop to take photos of the gorgeous colourful houses and pubs. Notting Hill is actually very famous on Instagram for their colourful houses which makes blogger shoots look that tiny more cuter!
The colourful and lively streets of Notting Hill make it such a beautiful atmosphere to explore and have a look around, and gives off such positive energy and summery vibes. Notting Hill is deffo the place you want to visit during spring and summer as that is when it will be enjoyed the most!
One way to describe Notting Hill has deffo got to be the retro and vintage vibes it holds. I mean the film itself ‘Notting Hill’ was filmed here, there’s not much more to say to be honest. There’s such cool bookshops and vintage record player stores here in Notting Hill, so if that’s what your into then you definitely need to visit here! There’s a super cute retro shop by Farm Girl Cafe which literally blasts the colour blue and white, this shop would also make for a great lil photo shoot as well.
If you love a good brunch spot (like me, lol) then Farm Girl Cafe is definitely the one for you. Farm Girl is one of the most well known brunch spots in Notting Hill, as it offers a wide variety of breakfast and lunch options and has vegan options too! We made a pit stop in Farm Girl Cafe and had some food. I went for an açai bowl with a rose latte and my cousin went for avocado on toast with a rose latte as well. I loved the açai bowl and would deffo go back for it again, but not gonna lie wasn’t very fond of the rose latte as it had a very strong rose taste to it (lol what else was I expecting).
I obviously had to take a flat-lay of the food for instagram because, it’s just too pretty not to! Even though I didn’t like the rose latte as much, the latte art was pretty impressive if I have to say so myself.
After we were done at Farm Girl Cafe, we headed off to Portobello Market to see what was on the stools and explore a bit. I didn’t actually take much photos when at Portobello Road Market as it got too busy too quickly and I didn’t have a chance to take my phone out! However I deffo took a few snaps of the famous vintage store ‘Alice’s’.
There are such cool items and retro pieces sold at ‘Alice’s’ and I deffo had to have a browse. If your into collecting vintage items then ‘Alice’s’ is the perfect shop for you then.
After being done at Portobello Road, we headed off to the insta famous florist of Notting Hill which is the Wild at Heart flower shop. It definitely is worth a visit if your a huge lover of flowers and bouquets, or even if not, visit it just to take a few snaps!
Wild at Heart florist has the most gorgeous floral displays ever, just look at that pretty pink rose branch. They do such amazing bouquets and plants there, it’s amazing!
After leaving Wild at Heart florists we strolled around the streets a bit more (more like finding our way back to the tube station lol) and then headed home!!
That is all for today’s post and I hope you enjoyed reading it! Comment down below if you have visited Notting Hill before!
