About Notting Hill Gate
Notting Hill Gate is one of the main thoroughfares of fashionable Notting Hill in London. Close to upmarket Kensington, Notting Hill gets its name from a manor in Kensington called Knotting-Bernes, and was a rural area until the 19th Century. Extensive redevelopment throughout the 1800s turned this location into a popular middle-class suburb of London, an era which ended with the Blitz in the 1940s and turned Notting Hill into slums. These were cleared in the 60s and 70s and the area has started to regain its fashionable status as the years have gone by. Home to the world-famous Portobello Market, there is a very high concentration of shops and restaurants in Notting Hill and Notting Hill Gate, offering a vibrant and exciting atmosphere all year round.
