Much like the film, the place itself is fantastic. The area is rich with quirky things to do, including cinemas, independent shops and cafes, the museum of brands and packaging and of course Portobello Market.
As the phrase goes, “West is Best” and for those in the West of London, they definitely feel so! Many argue that the West has more parks and culture than the rest of the London. It is also renowned for its wealth, but this doesn’t mean that affordable student accommodation in West London is out of the question.
The Portobello area is situated in between Notting Hill and Westbourne Green. It is the perfect location if you are looking for easy transport links into central London when commuting to your place of study.
If you are looking for somewhere that is picturesque and has plenty to offer, then Bayswater could be the perfect place for you to live. Although it is bordered by both Notting Hill and Paddington station, you’ll find the student accommodation in Bayswater completely different. It is an area that has its own character, which really sets it apart from other areas.
