My Fair London – Notting Hill

Friday, 15 April 2011

So it’s Friday again which means it’s time for My Fair London post - I am always a little shocked that it comes around so quickly! I am looking forward to relaxing this weekend and getting Bruno Mars ‘Grenade’ out of my head (I love that song but wow, it’s super catchy)!

Now that I have got that off my mind… ta da! I present the ever-popular Notting Hill! Thanks to the movie, it’s probably one of the most famous suburbs of London but it’s definitely worthy of the praise. I don’t really go there as often as I should but every time I do make the trip, I find something new! The colourful buildings, trendy Londoners in vintage sunglasses and boots, the smell of waffles from the stalls and the quirky antique shops are just a few of the attractions!! My favourite shop is Jessie Western on Portobello Road, my face was pressed up against that glass on Sunday (I didn’t trust myself to go inside)…

  7. I was in London recently for a weekend with my boyfriend but didnt get as far as nottingHill Ive never actually been there which is pretty bad since im not the hugest distance away from London its only a couple of hours drive. The shops look great & I love that sign about the secret garden round the back sounds intriguing
