To most people Notting Hill is just Portobello Road, its market and some pretty coloured houses. To me Notting Hill is a magic blend of local markets, incredible history, world-famous music, beautiful residential areas, renowned film locations and interesting anecdotes. This tour will dive you deep into what makes Notting Hill such a vibrant area for 2 and a half hours of music, active discovery and cultural wellbeing. Walk to the rhythm of Bob Marley, Adele, Robbie Williams, Jimi Hendrix, Dusty Springfield, Woody Allen and learn why they are connected to the area. Come and see where the famous scenes of Notting Hill were shot, together with other settings of movies such as The Italian Job, James Bond, Paddington and many more. Immerse into its local markets, vintage stalls and silver vaults. We will pass by old recording studios, hidden gems and secluded gardens. Get ready for an intimate, immersive and interactive experience that will make you fall in love with this neighbourhood like no other experiences will!
I am the co-founder of Unexpected London, a brand new way to explore London through culture, music and wellbeing. I love London and I never stop exploring its most unique and unexpected places. I am also an advocate for active living and have therefore created a concept of cultural wellbeing, where exploring and wellbeing merge into a uniquely beneficial activity for mind, body and soul. I want to help people from all over the world explore London like locals, away from crowded groups and touristy spots and in an unconventional and unexpected way. So forget long and wordy explanations, forget slow walks and stops. Forget classic itineraries. My tours will show you London in a completely new way, to the rhythm of the music created in every area, with a dynamic walk and with quick, fun and engaging anecdotes and stories.
We will start the tour at Notting Hill Gate. We will then walk towards Portobello Road and explore all its secrets beyond what is visible to all. The tour will then continue immersing in Notting Hill's most residential areas, where we will go by stunning villas as well as the iconic coloured terrace houses. Look out for some celebrities houses too along the way! The tour will then end near Holland Park Station.
