Instagram Guide to Notting Hill

  • Instagram Guide to Notting Hill

July 18, 2017 - Inspiration

Notting Hill is arguably one of London’s most iconic neighbourhoods. From the pastel coloured houses to the yearly Carnival and the half mile-long market: there’s just  so much to see and do in the area.

Because our General Store and Café is just a few steps away from Portobello Road -which is the heart and soul of Notting Hill- we know our way around it, and we think we have a few great spots that will make you want to whip the phone out of your pocket to get that perfect, instragram-worthy, shot.

So here’s our list of 15 of the most instagrammable spots in the area.

  1. If you want to see the most patriotic spots in the area, you can walk down Ledbury Road for a Union Jack door.
  2. if that’s too subtle for you, head to Temperley on Coleville Mews for a Union Jack painted building.
  3. Most days you can also spot a lovely red Beetle car on Elgin Crescent, that makes for a perfect shot with the beautiful architecture in the background.

  1. The Electric Cinema floor mosaic is often overlooked in favour of the big neon sign, but it’s definitely insta-worthy.
  2. Wild At Heart on Westbourne Grove is a must visit, not only for the beautiful flowers, but also for the eye-catching bright tiles that wrap all the way around the building... to the public loos behind.

  1. Walking down Kensington Church Street, it’s impossible to miss the flower-bedecked Churchill Arms as it’s definitely one of the most eye-catching pubs in the whole city.
  2. Don’t forget to take a picture of our store front -and tag us in it- and perhaps head inside for an Allpress coffee, which is the best around! 128 Talbot Road marks the spot.
  3. After you’re done browsing Portobello Market, make sure to go and have a look the Biscuiteers shop front, as it’s as pretty as one of their biscuits.

  1. It wouldn’t be a trip to Notting Hill unless you take at least one photo of a pink house! One of our favourites is just around the corner from our shop on Coleville Houses.
  2. St Lukes Mews also has some of the quaintest buildings around and it’s well worth a visit.
  3. And if you find yourself walking down Portland Road, watch out for the pink door and you might just find its googly eyes staring back at you.

  1. For the art hunters out there, you can feast your eyes on some huge murals. XL Recording Studio on Codrington Mews has a whole side covered with the artwork from Thom Yorke’s album ‘The Eraser’. For something more colourful, head to
  2. For something more colourful, head to Powis Gardens
  3. or to the alley just off Notting Hill Gate to see Barney McMahon’s work.
  4. Last, but definitely not least, make sure to snap a picture of the gorgeous, anonymous mural on Ledbury Road.
