Well established as one of London's most culturally and ethnically diverse locations, Notting Hill is an increasingly sought-after place to live. In addition to the area's excellent shops, bars and restaurants and schools, Notting Hill is renowned for its annual carnival and Portobello Road Market. It has long been a magnet for writers, artists, designers and other creatives, and home to politicians, professionals and finance sector workers.
Properties range from large Victorian houses to contemporary apartments, and there's a multitude of flats in converted period properties to suit all tastes in between. Notting Hill also benefits from excellent transport links, including the Central, District, Circle and Hammersmith & City Underground lines. The new Crossrail connection currently under construction at Paddington will bring the West End within a two-minute journey and will mean Liverpool Street and the City are just a ten-minute commute. The area also benefits from good road access to the A4 and A40.
