Notting Hill is a dream for foodies, especially if you love anything with avocado, and a coffee drinkers haven. “Breakfast Culture” still a relatively new concept in Britain, thrives in this area, with clean-living on the up and alcohol consumption on the decline.

With easy access via public transport from four different tube lines and buses, the bright and quirky Portobello Road, The Electric Cinema, The Gate Theatre, the multitude of shopping opportunities not to mention the bars and restaurants offering cuisine from around the world and some truly fabulous cocktails – (one of my favorite bars in London is The Portobello Star), Notting Hill has really made its comeback as one of the most popular places to live in London.
