Ahh, Notting Hill, an Instagrammers little gem! Notting Hill is famous for many things, from the yearly carnival the brings multi-cultural societies into one big colourful weekend-long street part, to the beautiful Portobello Market shops and stalls, the beautiful coloured houses of Notting Hill, the cute Portobello Road pubs and restaurants. Lest we forget Notting Hill romantic comedy starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant! Notting Hill is one place in London that every tourist weighs their coins has to pay a visit to when they come to London.
How can resist that pastel and candy coloured houses all lined up waiting to be snapchatted? It’s the perfect place to wander around on a Sunday as the streets are perfect to get lost in, in between Instagramming and latte-sipping sessions.
