Park
“With Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens on your door step, and with Green and St James park in close proximity, my flat is the perfect location for those wanting to get a morning run (or walk!) in the beautiful parks that London has to offer, along with a bit of site seeing. Hyde park is generally safe and I have never felt threatened, but the entrances are gated and are closed from sunset and reopen around 5.30am. I have often run throughout the park during the dark winter mornings, but saying that please remember London is a city and always be vigilant. If like me you are a very early bird, I would suggest foregoing the earphones if you are pounding the pavements on your own so that you can hear whats going on around you! The easiest way to get to Kensington gardens is to turn Right out of Monmouth road, and then take the first right onto Garway road - keep straight until you cross Moscow road continuing straight until you hit Bayswater road, where you then turn left and cross Bayswater road at the pedestrian crossing. 4.5 Mile loop, also known as Two Parks- runs the circumference of Hyde park and Kensington Gardens. Just stick to the large path which will eventually take you back to your starting point. You will enjoy running through Speakers corner, view Wellingtons arch, past Hyde Park Barracks, The Royal Albert Hall, The Albert Memorial, Kensington Palace and the Diana memorial playground! 7.2 Mile loop (Also known as Three parks) - includes all that of the two park loop, but at hyde park corner you come out of the park, cross over the large round about (running through Wellington Arch!) - and run the circumference of St James park and Green Park - where the London Marathon finishes. On this loop you will get to see the majestic Buckingham palace ”

French Restaurant
“ Famous Notting Hill restaurant with 2 Michellin stars, the perfect place for a very special supper.”
  • 125 locals recommend
Café
“Favourite hangout of the young and moneyed Chelsea-ites, the food at Bluebird has traditionally played second fiddle to the cocktails. Newly-appointed executive chef Simon Gregory has, thankfully, upped the kitchen’s game considerably with the likes of salt baked kohlrabi and salsify and spice roasted baby chicken now the stars of the show.”

Pizza Place
“Good pizza. By the people behind Soho House. Outside tables are lovely for a coffee in the sun. ”
  • 157 locals recommend
Australian Restaurant
“The trendy brunch place of Nottinghill with fabulous Australian chef Bill Granger St the helm ... make sure to get there early or be ready to queue for a bit ! ”
  • 155 locals recommend
Asian Restaurant
“Fashionable Asian fusion. Not cheap, but a local favourite. Also has a fun - but small - bar at weekends. ”
  • 145 locals recommend
Diner
“Notting Hill feels like it should have a good old fashioned diner, and it does. The Electric isn’t cheap, but it’s a great shout no matter what time you’re in the area. There’s an all-day breakfast menu from 8am which is generally very satisfying, and a solid selection of uncomplicated but delicious food for a really hearty dinner. The flat iron chicken and a double cheese burger should at the very least be on your table, but the mac and cheese is the only side worth a fiver. Even if you aren’t making use of the cinema here, most of the food is worth making a journey for – especially without the 50% off if you’ve got a cinema ticket for next door. ”

Café
“Open since 1954, the pub has a 114-cover ground floor restaurant, a 132-capacity club, and a 20-seat wine bar, plus two self-contained flats, and office, garden, and extra storage. It has developed a reputation as a host venue for stars including the first UK shows of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Jimi Hendrix, and other more modern acts such as Adele and Ed Sheeran. It also welcomed Rolling Stones bandmembers Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood, when they played a “secret” gig together there in 2013. SW5 9JA”

Bar
“This is an institution in Nottinghill, the pub is fun and full of character (and local characters too!) whereas the dining room upstairs is a good table, I recommend it ”
