Notting Hill Kids
Bay Sixty6 Skate Park
65-66 Acklam Rd., Notting Hill
This indoor skate park offers full-day lessons for beginner and advanced skateboarders of all ages, as well as skate camps and after-school clubs. Kids especially love Gary, but all the guys are very knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. The skate park itself is an iconic scene of punk life in London.
197 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill
These beautiful boutiques are now peppered across the city and stock impeccably crafted, stylish, yet age-appropriate childrenswear. The clothes are classic with a distinct French feel and a painstaking attention to detail, from the hand-stitching to the organic cotton. Bonpoint also carries shoes, toys, books, and more. It's pretty expensive, but you totally get what you pay for, so whatever you buy for your oldest now will still be in pristine condition for your youngest years later.
2 Blenheim Crescent, Notting Hill
Owners and buyers Honey Bowdrey and Jasmine Guinness specialize in nostalgic toys—wooden dollhouses, toy ovens, pirate ships, and Noah's Arks, plus old-fashioned games like tiddlywinks that kids still love today. Kids kind of go nuts for spending their pocket money in the special section stocked with Swedish Fish, bubble blowers, and fake tattoos, among other bits and bobs.
