The Notting Hill publicized by the Hugh Grant film wasn't always nice. Notting Hill during the early 20th century and particularly during the post-war period had the characteristics of a slum, Buildings that were overpopulated, poverty and race riots affected the neighborhood. These issues would plague Notting Hill until redevelopment commenced in the 1960s. The gentrification attracted the wealthy, and upscale shops and restaurants began to fill the area. The renowned Portobello Road features a prominent market, and a nightlife that is stylish can be found amid its numerous boutiques.

There are so many things related to London, and the scenes of various movies abound. But many people are so concerned about Notting Hill, which is derived from the film "Notting Hill."
Metro Central Line Sit to Notting Hill Gate and take the subway to see the signpost pointing to Portobello Market
Here is the location of the film "Notting Hill" starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts, as well as the world famous antique second-hand market.
Hugh Grant's monologue in the opening of the film is a true portrayal of the market: "You can imagine this is Notting Hill, my favorite corner of London. There is a market every day, selling all kinds of fruits and vegetables. There is also a tattoo shop, a person drunk and smoked and went in. After he came out, he was very puzzled and asked himself why he chose the pattern of 'I love KEN'. There is a barber shop here, everyone comes out. The hairstyles are like the strange biscuits on the TV show; there are weekends, more street vendors appear on the road, can always be discharged to the door of Notting Hill, you can see countless people selling antiques here. ".
In addition to antiques, there are a variety of second-hand goods, clothing, and food. Some old objects are really interesting, but the price is not cheap. I bought an antique opera telescope, packed in a very delicate wooden box, ready to be sent to a friend, and later I did not mention it. In addition to shopping, there is also an attraction that will be visited by tourists from all over the world, that is, the blue bookstore in Hugh Grant in the movie: the notting hill bookshop. But it is no longer the original location, but another place in the market, re-dressed as a film.
"Brunch" is a combination of "Breakfast" and "Lunch", meaning "Brunch".
originated in the late 19th century in the British upper class, when the British who had money and time were keen to hunt in the morning and eat late. It was later promoted and gradually became famous around the world.
People who live in the city will choose to enjoy a lazy Brunch on the weekend. Unlike dinner, Brunch pays more attention to the environment and communication. In a relaxed and bright atmosphere, with family or friends, don't worry, don't hurry. Sleeping can sleep to wake up naturally, creating a paradise for the whole morning. Brunch is a time concept and a pleasant slow lifestyle.
In the rainy day of Notting Hill, come to a Benedict egg, very comfortable.
