Unpopular opinion – I didn’t like Notting Hill the movie. For the rare few who hasn’t watched it, it’s about a super famous movie star with a megawatt smile (literally) who crosses path with a floppy-haired, somewhat aimless bookshop owner. I thought said famous movie star, Anna Scott, was an obnoxious character… it always seemed to be about her. However, I did enjoy the sound track very much.
The Noting Hill in real life, and its most famous street – Portobello Road, was charming. The best street food? Hardly. But the beautiful doors and interesting antique wares make it an enjoyable way to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon.
Also, I mustn’t forget to mention that this is probably the best neighbourhood to get those #doorgoals pictures.
