Located in the heart of beautiful Notting Hill, minutes from the vibrant Portobello Market is the world-famous Notting Hill Bookshop.
The store opened in 1979 and originally specialised in travel books only. In 2011 the shop opened up to a wider audience and broadened its stock to cover most areas of publishing while still maintaining a sizeable travel section.
These days we concentrate on beautiful gift editions, irresistible pocket hardbacks, satin-bound classics and a wide range of golden gilt leather-bounds.
Another area of special focus is the children's section, housed under a charming glass roof in a cosy part of the shop. We take pride in our wide range of carefully curated titles as well as educational toys and gifts. We strongly believe in encouraging readership early and our staff is always at hand to offer advice to children and parents alike.
In 1999 the bookshop became famous after its interior had been copied in the Notting Hill film featuring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts. Ever since the premiere we've enjoyed visits from thousands of fans of the film coming from all over the world.
Choose from thousands of brilliant books, DVDs, CDs and more.
