Things to do in Notting Hill

As we approach the opening of our pop-up shop in the gorgeous Notting Hill, we round up our favourite things to do in this area. Make sure you check them out – of course after visiting Kids & Co. first!

Characterised by the colourful houses and iconic markets, Notting Hill is one of our favourite places to visit in London. Made famous by the 1999 rom-com Notting Hill, the area has something for everyone, and now includes our Kids & Co. pop up!

Kids & Co. is our 5-week long pop up in collaboration with Little Aurelia, Em&Lu, and Little Lulubel. We are showcasing a curated selection of the best in kids clothing and accessories, unavailable on the high street.

Portobello Road

Perhaps the most obvious mention on a visit to Notting Hill; the bustling Portobello Market is first on the list. Discover fun bric-a-brac pieces and second-hand clothing, alongside plenty of sweet treats to keep little ones happy!

If browsing the markets gets too much for everyone, why not stroll the surrounding streets, looking out for the beautiful houses painted in a rainbow of colours. Which is your favourite?

Electric Cinema

If the weather remains typically British, why not keep warm and dry and visit the Electric Cinema.

With a current box office hit showing each week, you can enjoy Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom the first two weeks of our pop up, after picking up your favourite pieces from Kids & Co.

Biscuiteers

 

With their specialised children’s decorating classes, Biscuiteers is the perfect place to keep creative little hands busy and entertained. While they become icing maestros, you can relax and enjoy a hot drink and a biscuit or cake, or even join in the decorating yourself.

Stop off and discover alternate worlds and universes hidden inside these lovely bookshops. With books for children of all ages at Lutyens & Rubinstein, you’re sure to find the perfect book to read while you enjoy your new Kids & Co. pieces. Bedtime story wearing Em & Lu anyone?
