My Favorite Notting Hill Sights & Bites

We went around my favorite spots in Notting Hill, and it was the BEST. This is my preferred district in London because it’s filled with restaurants, pubs, shopping, coffee shops, brunch, colour, and great night life. For a taste of Notting Hill, check out this video! You can see a list and description of each space below.

The Laslett

I love this hotel! It’s a boutique set of chic rooms, and I recommend all London visitors stay here. It’s right next to the Notting Hill Gate tube stop, and the food is delicious. An added bonus is the super-fast Wi-Fi and friendly staff. When my parents visited, they stayed here and said that even though their room was near the road, they couldn’t hear any of the chaos that is lovely London. I cannot say enough great things about this hotel! Click on the name to book your room.

Portobello Road 

This road is filled with colorful houses, eclectic stores, people (on the weekends), great spaces to eat, theaters, and so much more! You can get lost there, but not actually, and spend hours wandering around. I would suggest coming here early on a Saturday morning before all the crowds and enjoying the street food while window shopping!

Sun In Splendour 

Looking for a pub with great beer selections and food options? You’ve got to check out this space. It’s hard to miss with the Victorian decor and bright yellow paint. It’s also the oldest pub in Notting Hill, no big deal, and the inside is kept up very well. The crowd this place attracts is pleasant and energetic, and we’ve enjoyed ourselves every time we’ve visited.

The Continental Pantry 

This is my favorite coffee shop in Notting Hill for a few reasons. It’s pretty new, so you can tell their concepts are fresh. The food and coffee are fantastic. The music is a winner—I actually heard them playing The Civil Wars the first time I was here, so that immediately made me fall in love. There is a lot of natural light. The service is attentive. The Wi-Fi is fast. Gosh, what else can I say? Go here! They also have wine nights and other events, which is always fun.

Granger & Co. 

Ricotta-stuffed hotcakes. Enough said. Haha, but actually, this place is fantastic for brunch, lunch, and dinner! The wait can be a bit long, usually averaging thirty minutes, but it is worth it. My husband felt like the portions were a little small, but he will say the food tasted great. I also saw the Ladies of London here once, so that was exciting!

Daylesford Organic 

This is a chic, organic grocery store filled with delicious foods, a home goods store, and a restaurant. We had dinner here and did some shopping in the basement. I like to think of it as a mixture of Whole Foods and West Elm. They also have traditional wines, treats, and cheeses, which make for great presents.

Farm Girl 

If you follow Farm Girl on Instagram, you know that their food looks like art. I would recommend their gluten-free berry pancakes, pumpkin porridge, or avocado toast. You also definitely need to try the rose lattes and gluten-free donuts! I love taking my friends here, and it is a hit every single time.

202 

Sometimes Notting Hill brunch spaces are absolutely packed. For some reason, 202 has been able to get us a table within five minutes pretty consistently. It’s definitely not because of poor food flavors, because the food is great. The service is also very efficient, and I appreciate the decor. If you’re in the mood to shop, you can head to the basement after eating and check out their super fashionable (although pricey) clothes and accessories.

All Saints Church 

When walking through Notting Hill, you can’t miss this church. There is a lot of great history in this building. According to their site, this church was badly bombed during the Second World War. It stood closed again for some six years until it was re-opened in 1951. Since then, it’s been renovated and you can attend mass here on Sundays at 11:00 a.m.!

The Ginstitute 

This place isn’t rated number eight of 1,280 Nightlife in London attractions on TripAdvisor for nothing. The cocktails are delicious, and you will actually learn about gin! You’ve got to be 18 to enter, so don’t bring your kids! The masterclass is 60 pounds per person, and the experience is 110 pounds per person. You can book your session here.

Wild At Heart 

This organic flower market is in the heart of Notting Hill. They always have such fresh flowers and a variety at that! It’s a hard building to miss, as the turquoise tiles give it away.

Cheers,
