See & Do
Saturday morning at Portobello Road market is one of the must-dos: you'll find every kind of antique stall and dozens of little emporia selling memorabilia, paintings, objets d'art and vintage clothing. You're also close to Holland Park, Kensington Palace and its gardens and the greenery of Hyde Park, not to mention most of the West End.
The Beauty Works West health club at Lampton Place is five minutes away.
August bank holiday weekend
Turn up the volume. The Notting Hill Carnival – a two-day fiesta of Caribbean bands, parades and steel bands – has to be one for the diary.
