The area is upmarket and quite established and posh
The area is upmarket and quite established and posh, you are more likely to bump into lawyers and bankers on the street rather than artists, students or cool funky folks. However it is not too far from Ladbroke Grove which luckily kept its more edgy character and original population which helps to freshen up the atmosphere.
With 2 tube stations at a walking distance (Holland Park and Notting Hill Gate) as well as many bus routes, the area is very well connected. It is also in walking distance from Paddington Station so national network is at hand as well.
The area is quiet and clean. This also may be its down side: sometimes it feels too posh when you would like an atmosphere which is more urban and rough, but that's West London, not east.
Area is close both to Holland Park and Notting Hill Gate so there are loads of shops and restaurants, both chains and independent. Portobello Road is just around the corner so pubs, bars and more restaurants are available there too. Westbourne Grove is a particular gem with high end shop and, Boutiques delies and more. The area is extremely green with abundance of open spaces, parks, squares and gardens, among them the beautiful Holland Park with its spectacular Japanese garden.
Great to walk though Holland Park on sunny weekend mornings to avoid the crowds.
Great to walk though Holland Park on sunny weekend mornings to avoid the crowds. Also Hyde Park is very close.
Only tube station in the area is Holland Park, but it is Central Line, which is very convenient. Also plenty of buses going into central.
It is really good that Notting Hill is quite close on one side, but also Westfield London in the other. You can find anything you need on these sites.
Since this is a very residential area, not many amenities nearby. However a few places in the main street, like supermarkets, shops and cafes.
Local beggars and noise are big issues here in this area
I dislike the noise and tourist that come in at Weeknds. It is a trendy area which attracts people from outside the borough who crowd the local bars and pubs. Not really pet friendly as there are no parks. Plenty of pubs accept dogs though, which is great. Area is safe overall but I don’t go Uber the bridge at Ladbroke Grove I to W10 as it needs regeneration and is scary at times!
Transport links are very good. Plenty of bus Sevices in all directions and two or three tube stations in the vicinity.
Local beggars and noise are big issues here in this area. Lots of people holding street parties late into the night. My street is made of of property owners but some social housing exists. Building works is a huge issue doe to all the properties copying each other and putting in basement kitchens! Every day for the last 20 years there has been excessive building works noise and I hate it!
Not many open spaces but plenty of shops and restaurants and pubs. Portobello Road is very popular die to the amount of shops and restaurants there plus the daily fruit and veg markets.
Extremely family friendly with lots of green spaces.
