The Alternative Notting Hill Experience

What You'll Do

Come and explore colourful, characterful West London on a walking tour around Notting Hill, where you'll really get under the skin of these beautiful streets and your guide will help you get to know the area like a local.

To most people Notting Hill is just Portobello Road, it’s market and some pretty coloured houses. To us, Notting Hill is a magic blend of local markets, incredible history, world-famous music, beautiful residential areas, renowned film locations and interesting anecdotes.

Your guide on this unique tour will deep dive into what makes Notting Hill such a vibrant area over 3 hours of music, active discovery and fascinating cultural experiences. Walk to the rhythm of Bob Marley, Adele, Robbie Williams, Jimi Hendrix, Dusty Springfield and Woody Allen, and learn why they are inextricably linked to the area.

Come and see where the famous scenes of Notting Hill were shot, together with other movie settings such as The Italian Job, James Bond, Paddington and many more. With a maximum of 6 people per experience this is a truly immersive tour, where we will access very tiny little local places where bigger groups could never access.

Immerse yourself in the local markets, vintage stalls and silver vaults. We will pass by old recording studios, hidden gems and secluded gardens.

Get ready for an intimate, immersive and interactive experience that will make you fall in love with this neighbourhood like no other experiences will!
