As in February, our walk was centered about the roads off Portobello Road. This time, though, instead of going to the pub for lunch, we stopped for delicious ice cream (this is when The Boy Child ordered salted caramel).
As always, my favourite part of a walk in town is when we discover a hidden away mews. St Luke’s Mews may be tucked way, but it is globally famous because of its role in a heart-rending scene outside Juliet and Peter’s house in the film Love Actually.
The owners of the pink house are presumably fed up with hoards of tourists/Instagrammers hanging around outside their house, because they ask for a £1 donation to an animal shelter if you take a photo. I was the only person to drop a £1 in the box (there were about a dozen other people milling about).
If you fancy purchasing a house in St Luke’s Mews, there’s one for sale here.
Our walk began and ended at Notting Hill Gate tube station and took about 75 minutes (including the stop for ice cream).
