When I was studying in London I was lucky enough to live in the renowned Notting Hill neighbourhood, of Hugh Grant fame. If you like pastel-coloured houses, this really is the place for you. These photos were taken on a midsummer evening (actually the World Cup Final – I got told off by a passerby for not being inside watching the football). The last two shots were from the area near Notting Hill Gate, where the architecture of the houses is actually quite different, so that’s why they look a bit out of place. But I thought the last house was too cute not to include!
