Visiting Notting Hill, London

Last Sunday, we spent a few hours walking around Notting Hill and it was the perfect end to a busy weekend. 
I love going to Notting Hill, it’s one of my favourite areas of London because it’s so colourful and lively! I made sure that I tried Bubbleology and Hummingbirds Bakery before I headed back home, I hear so much praise about both of them and they are often on top of recommendation lists, I couldn’t miss out.

As I am such a massive fan of the film, Notting Hill, I was rather disappointed when I finally came across the the “travel bookshop” from the movie to find that it’s a tatty shoe shop. I knew it wasn’t a book shop in real life, it’s actually a really messy cheap shoe shop in real life which was such a let down.

We just strolled around for ages. The best times I’ve had in London are when I don’t have a schedule, and I don’t have to be getting to a certain place at a certain time. 
I suppose some people like things to be planned, and more often than not, I devise an itinerary so that we get the most out of the time we’re there! But I do love the more spontaneous times when it’s more chilled out – it’s generally less stressful!

As always, the weekends wasn’t long enough and before we knew it, it was time to drive back home.

I think I’ll make plans to visit again in a few weeks time, I want to go to the Hollywood Costume exhibition at the V&A. It looks like it’s going to be so good!

If anyone has any recommendations of their favourite places to go in their favourite areas of London, drop me a comment and let me know, I’ll add it to my list! 🙂

  1. Lovely pictures you look gorgeous in the dress 🙂 My favourite place is going for a walk through Hyde Park the lancaster gate end and feeding the squirrels really pretty at this time of year 🙂 Then dim sum in China town obviously! xo

  2. it sounds like you've had a lovely time in London.. it's always the nicest when they're not planned.
    You look gorgeous too Sarah. Love what you're wearing. If i saw you in the street, i'd definitely ask for your autograph!xx

  3. I'd love to spend some time in Notting Hill but I always feel like London is 100mph place that it's hard to just chill out and see some things without a schedule.

    Love the photos 🙂


  4. Aw I love your outfit. I love strolling around Notting Hill, and Primrose Hill is another favourite! Such lovely big houses, and cute cafes 🙂

  5. I'd love to visit London again someday. Such a great city! Looks like you did a bunch of fun stuff!

    I really really love your jacket and how you paired it with a pretty floral dress. I just bought a similar jacket and I'd really love to pair it with a girly floral piece.

  6. The few times Ive been down to London I haven't been to Nottinghill D: . It reminds me me so much of France with the colourful buildings! I love how everything is still vintage too like that lovely car :O!! You look so cute in that sheer floral dress and I like how you've given it a grunge twist with the shades 🙂 x
