Notting Hill's Instagrammable Locations

As it’s Easter weekend we decided to get out and about and explore Notting hill in London,
well known for the Notting hill carnival, portobello road market and its amazing instagrammable locations. We caught the central line tube to Holland Park station and within a short eight-minute walk we arrived at the much loved photographed spot of Stanley crescent.

Stanley Crescent is well known and photographed location due to its blooming pink blossom tree, it was a very busy location with influencers dressed in impressive tutus and pink dresses trying to capture that perfect shot, we could see why people would travel to this location and it was stunning, with the large white house and the contrast of the pink blossoms what wasn't there to like, an amazing corner of London to strike that pose. A frequented location for those wanting to a small oasis of beauty in the middle of London. 

We then made our way to portobello road on our route we passed some stunning homes full of colourful facades which defiantly deserved to be photographed, a must-have capture is outside Alice’s antique shop which was used as a film location for Mr Gruber's antique shop in the movie Paddington Bear 2. 

We headed to Denbigh Terrace here you will find an array of beautiful pastel homes which is great to capture those much-loved insta worthy shots.  Our next destination was Kensington park road when we stopped to buy a Jolly Ginger at Biscuiteers, a much-loved treat in our family, but often we order online so it was great to actually visit the shop in person. Biscuiteers is a beautiful looking shop both inside and out so defiantly worth a visit.

Our final destination of the morning was Luke Mews, here we bumped into a couple of lovely ladies who were also taking pictures, she kindly offered to capture us outside this stunning row of houses, we simply couldn't refuse.

Luke Mews is known for the stunning pink house. Notting Hill has so many amazing places that every photographer would love to capture and most Instagram influencers would be more delighted to share on their feed. We recommended going early morning to avoid the crowds and take a slow walk around the streets, these are just some of the locations, but if you explore you will certainly find more.
