The Roof Terrace

Notting Hill and Portobello Road in particular is one of the most famous media locations in London. Portobello Gold is situated right in the heart of the Portobello Antiques market which runs only on Saturdays. As opposed to the fruit and veg market further down the street, the Antiques block is the quietest part of the whole road, with no through traffic and mainly pedestrians.

Over the years, the following features have proven to be the most popular:

1. Our tropical conservatory with sliding glass roof, offers plenty of light on a winter's day. The (Kentia) palms, weeping figs and Yukkas are 20 years old and are very photogenic. As the bar operates as an Internet Cafe during the daytime, it is reasonably quiet in the weekday. Crews can be fed and watered in this area throughout the day.

2. Our roof terrace is a great favourite and was chosen by Working Title for roof top scenes in 'Notting Hill'. There is a pleasant view of St Peters Church to the rear, Kensal Rise four miles to the North and a perfect panorama of the whole of the Portobello Road Antiques market (on Saturdays only). The 900 sq ft space is not overlooked and access is straight out of our hotel apartment (no clambering up ladders).
