Notting Hill Walking Route

Estimated time

Route details

  • Starting Point: Notting Hill Gate underground station, London travel zone 1.
  • Walking route: From Notting Hill Gate we’ll walk towards Portobello Road to explore Portobello Road Market. We will also explore more of this area, and find some Notting Hill Film Locations and other historic places.
  • Finish: Either Notting Hill Gate or Ladbroke Road underground stations.

Bear in mind that there is a full market on Saturdays, so this is the day of the week we would really recommend for visiting Portobello Road Market in Notting Hill.

Some sections of Portobello Road Market are open other days of the week, so it is still possible to visit Notting Hill on another day if you are not going to be in London on a Saturday, just check what day would be best in our article: Discover Notting Hill in London.
