Part of the reason I started a blog was as a way of documenting some of the things I get up to. I love to take photos wherever I go and rather than bore everyone on Instagram with hundreds of them, I’ll be doing more posts as a bit of a photo diary so I hope you enjoy them and they help at least person on with their own adventures!
This travelogue is about a recent walk around Notting Hill I had. I was going down to London for work and thought I’d combine it with meeting up with my brother but unfortunately he got stuck at work so I took a wander by myself. Unfortunately I somehow picked the hottest day of the whole summer (literally) to do it. With highs of 36C which is unheard of, I wished I’d waited for a slightly cooler day to do it but it was lovely nonetheless.
In case you were interested in knowing the route I walked, here’s a list of my stops after I arrived at Notting Hill Gate Tube Station.
- Farmer Street
- Hillgate Place
- Jameson Street
- Farm Place
- Uxbridge Street
- Pembridge Road
- Portobello Road
- Denbigh Terrace
- Back onto Portobello Road
- Chepstow Villas
- Back onto Portbello Road, down through the road where the market is usually on (but it was a Thursday so no market)
- Up to Westbourne Grove
- Down to Nikki Tibbles Florist
- Colville Road
- Colville Terrace
- Ledbury Road
- Chepstow Cresent
- Pembridge Road again with a little detour into Pembridge Mews
- And back to Notting Hill Gate Tube Station before I headed off to work in Old Street
Although I’ve listed some of the places I walked through, there are soooo many cute little streets throughout Notting Hill so I encourage you to take a turn wherever your legs decide to take you! Next time I’m down, I’d like to take more of a walk through the top part of Notting Hill but the heat on the day I was there stopped me from doing too much!
Here are just a few of the photos I took of the pretty spots I saw along the way.
