Through the Lens: Notting Hill

Through the Lens: Notting Hill
Stores, History, Inspiration

When you mention Notting Hill, for many people it conjures up images of a floppy-haired Hugh Grant selling books and wooing Americans, but the true face of this west London enclave is far more fascinating than any Richard Curtis film.

Here we take a walk around our new home, exploring the often-overlooked beauty of second hand shops and the eclectic (and eccentric) community.

Cubitts Notting Hill is now open seven days a week, at 312 Portobello Road.
