FOCUS ON: NOTTING HILL

NEED TO KNOW | AREA INSIGHT

TRAVEL AND EDUCATION
Located in the heart of West London, Notting Hill is among the most desired areas to live in the world. It is served by a wealth of transport links, with the central line from Notting Hill Gate taking just 16 minutes to get into the City. A commute to Canary Wharf can take as little as 25 minutes, although you should allow longer during rush hour. As you’d expect for an area where a four bedroom family home can set you back more than £5m, there are more private schools than you can shake a stick at.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL?
Tom Goy from Knight Frank says: “There is something about Notting Hill that makes it totally different from other parts of London. It could be the beautiful buildings or the wonderful communal gardens. It could be the shops and cafes of Westbourne Grove or the world famous Portobello Market. The main thing, though, is the people. Those who live here are proud to do so, and they often stay here all their lives – the community feel isn’t the same anywhere else.”
