In and Around Notting Hill

A visual, short descriptive guide to the highlights in Portobello & Golborne markets & wider Notting Hill (inc. Holland Park). From extreme poverty in the 1950's to it's status now as a rapidly gentrifying and extremely fashionable section of the city, this is my neighbourhood in west London. This gentrification happily mixes with a local landscape of diverse cultures: Spanish, Moroccan, Portuguese & West Indian, making Notting Hill a uniquely attractive place to live.
