Notting Hill Shops
188 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill
London finally gets a dose of goop IRL. We’ve opened our very own Notting Hill store in the city where it all began ten years ago (at GP’s kitchen table). Designed by Fran Hickman, this is one of our biggest retail ventures yet: four floors, flooded with natural light, complete with olive trees and wildflowers. Start at the bottom—a blue velvet boudoir filled with an array of G. Sport apparel, supplements, and other super functional and great-looking workout gear. Climb a few steps and enter the world of goop home (and the gorgeousness that is the goop x CB2 collaboration) with doors opening onto an ivy-covered, stone-walled garden. Up one more flight, you’ll find a London-specific edit of G. Label, Stella McCartney, Co, and more. Finally, the top floor is a wonderland of clean, nontoxic beauty products with custom vanities where you can chill out and try everything before you buy. Images courtesy of Appear Here.
Harper & Tom’s
73 Clarendon Rd., Notting Hill
This iconic floristry business is thirty years old—and still going strong. Lush, colorful, and seasonal bunches—inspired by the English countryside—are what's on offer at this legendary spot, which is why they've been endlessly replicated across the city. Harper & Tom's offers flower delivery subscriptions—they will come and arrange all the vases in your house—along with gardening contracts in a similar, countrified vein.
Portobello Road Market
Portobello Rd., Notting Hill
Here, a seemingly endless row of stalls is packed with everything from antiques and china to books, furniture, and vintage clothes; in addition, there's a section where you can buy beautiful fresh produce and delicious prepared food. It gets busy on weekends, but squeezing through the crowds on this adorable old street is an essential London experience.
206 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill
This Notting Hill shop started out selling traditional tailored swim trunks for men and women, and the brand quickly expanded to include more colorful and extremely well-made basics. There is also an outpost in the Hamptons.
Talbot Rd., Notting Hill
It's all about bright colors and all things British-made here. Favorites are the selection of vintage globes, satchels, enamelware, and classic old-school bus paraphernalia.
Wild at Heart
222 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill
Nikki Tibbles’s flower emporium has been around for over twenty years, making her a household name and her shops—a concession at the entrance to Liberty, a landmarked turquoise street island in Notting Hill, and a formal Chelsea boutique—an institution. You can count on Wild at Heart for its signature graphic bouquets, which make perfect gifts no matter what the occasion. The seasonal jam-jar arrangements make a particularly thoughtful gift for the host as they're so easy to throw on the table or mantle for quick dinnertime décor.
36 Ledbury Road, Notting Hill
There are long kimono robes, cute little pajama sets, and supima cotton underwear and bras for days at this shop. There are flashes of lace and really flattering cuts, which means that while the offerings are simple, they're still sexy.
Wild & Gorgeous
52 Ledbury Rd., Notting Hill
This jewel box of a store is perfect for any little princess, as the well-made dresses, shoes, and accessories don't lack for pretty pinks and frills. There is a beautiful selection of flower girl attire and even frocks for babies. The online store is great if you can't get to Notting Hill.
Couverture and the Garbstore
188 Kensington Park Rd., Notting Hill
Run by husband-and-wife team Ian Paley and Emily Dyson, this multilevel space is stocked with independent designers from all over the globe. While the women's section is home to plenty of international names that are hard to find elsewhere (along with a strong NYC contingent like Rachel Comey and Steven Alan), it's the meticulously edited kids’ selection—Morley tees, Oeuf toys—that's earned the shop praise from locals and visitors alike.
R.S. Currie & Co. (Closed)
105 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill
Set up by a young couple who refurbished a former car showroom to create a playful, beautiful space for kids, R.S. Currie stocks a variety of both new and vintage toys, with an emphasis on creativity, play, and non-battery powered imagination. They provide party planning services as well.
