Notting Hill, The Movie Tour

Tours in London

There are many tours you can do in London but the first one I wanted to review was a self-guided walking tour of the 1990s movie ‘Notting Hill’.

Notting Hill Movie – The Self-Guided Walking Tour

The hopeless romantic that I am loves this movie and I watched it again recently.  I never realised that there was an actual self-guided walking tour with places you can still see almost 20 years on!  Several are available online.  The entire walk takes about an hour but there are things you may want to combine with the tour, like shopping!.  If so,  allow more time.

The tour starts as you step out of Notting Hill Gate tube station.  Opposite is the place where William watched the short sci fi film starring Anna Scott.

Then walk on to Bella & Max’s house in Lansdowne Road.

Go on to peak through the railings at Rosmead Gardens, which William and Anna climbed and  illegally trespassed.

Take a wander along Portobello Road to Williams’ bookshop where he meets Anna for the first time.  Note it isn’t actually a book shop!

Finally, the famous blue door which was the entrance to William’s house.

Yep! The large blue door, that was the one!

I thoroughly enjoyed walking around here and reminiscing over the movie.  If you are looking for some other things to do in the area or want to combine it with another activity or recommended restaurant then check out the following…
