Best Restaurants in West London
West London is one of the most affluent and desirable areas of London. Within West London you’ll find the increasingly gentrified Notting Hill and its associated Portobello Market. Further west there in Knightsbridgeis there are a host of luxurious shops including Harrords. South Kensington and Chelsea offer a slice of how the other half live, and for a more rural feel Richmond upon Thames offers a little taste of the countryside. The main areas to explore are:
Notting Hill is lined with grand Georgian townhouses and peppered with a variety of bars and restaurants. It’s also home to Portobello Market and the Notting Hill Carnival, an annual celebration Caribbean culture in London.
Starting from Hyde Park Corner, Knightsbridge is lined with café’s, restaurants and luxurious shops, including the famous Harrods.
Starting on the edge of Hyde Park, South Kensington is home to the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum. A great place to people watch from one of the many pavement cafes and restaurants.
Chelsea’s King’s Road rose to fame in the ‘swinging ’60s’, and was the mecca for 1970s punk fashions. Today it’s far from cutting edge, but pleasantly lined with fashion and homeware shops, cafés and restaurants.
Home to a lot of good pubs mainly located within residential streets. Red trousers and rugby shirts are a must.
The idillc Richmond is located on the river Thames and has a host of good pubs, restaurants and a weekend farmers market.
