Despite having lived in London for almost two years, I’ve yet to visit Notting Hill until this week. With the weather being so ideal I decided to take a day off from University life and take a stroll around the area to explore what it has to offer.
After having to run some errands in the morning, Patrick and I got the tube across to Notting Hill Gate station. We’d done some research and decided to go to Pizza Metro Pizza an Italian restaurant famous for its metre long pizzas and recommended in the Where The Chefs Eat guide. They do an amazing lunch menu and be sure to order their Polpette al Sulgo.
We headed to the famous Portobello Road, full of of cute coffee shops, market stalls and instagrammable colourful houses. I managed to resist from doing any shopping but popped into Hummingbird Bakery to pick up one of their adorable Easter cupcakes.
One of the places that has been on my to-visit list in London for as long as I can remember is the Kyoto Gardens in Holland Park. The Japanese gardens are the perfect place to destress from London life and have a pond with the most amazing koi carp. All of the cherry blossom was in full bloom so spring has finally arrived.
It was so nice to spend the day exploring a new part of London and being completely distracted from the long list of jobs I should have been getting on with. Let me know if you’ve got any favourite places in Notting Hill.
