an afternoon in Notting Hill, West London
Portebello Road with London Cab in shocking pink ad
A few weeks ago I was in Notting Hill, the weather was much better than the weather forecast which allowed me to have a few good hours in the afternoon exploring the shops along Portebello Road. My main purpose was to visit MELT, a Chocolate Boutique in Westbourne Grove, I will write this in a separate post.
Quoted from Wikipedia: “Notting Hill has a contemporary reputation as an affluent and fashionable area; known for attractive terraces of large Victorian townhouses, and high-class shopping and restaurants (particularly around Westbourne Grove and Clarendon Cross)”.
It was not that crowded that day as that day was a weekday. It would be nice if I could go during weekend to visit the famous flea market but then I would not be able to take these nice photos. Nevertheless, towards the end, there are still numerous street stalls selling clothes, fruits & vegetables and flowers. Here some of my top favorite pictures to share with you. For my full album, please follow this link to iFoto.
Can’t stop looking, isn’t it?
Interesting metal plates
Antique shops (above & below), I have to revisit for more treasure hunt.
Pretty cupcakes from Hummingbird bakery, you can get nice cupcakes in UK too!
The Flowered Corner, isn’t this outdoor florist pretty and cool?
Pizzeria with very creative window dressing, look at the orange car inside!!!
Florist in Westbourne Grove, I was attracted by the two lovely dogs playing with each other.
Stay tune for my coming post on Chocoholic Part 3: Melt…. Chocolate Boutique in Ledbury Road
