About Notting Hill
Notting Hill is located in the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and is synonymous with affluent locals, high-end boutiques and leafy parks. The high-end properties and close proximity to some of London’s most famous attractions also make this a popular office location for businesses primarily in the food and drink, professional services, and retail industries.
It is also a great area for companies in the print, fashion, design or creative sectors, thanks to the area’s history with the arts. Finance businesses, meanwhile, who do not need to be directly in the City would benefit from a Notting Hill address – it offers just as much prestige but with a more classically sophisticated and elegant feel.
Notting Hill is also the site for the world-renowned Notting Hill Carnival each year when the neighbourhood really comes alive with thousands of people landing on the area to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the parades.
Office Space in Notting Hill
Many of the period properties in Notting Hill have been converted into offices spaces over recent years which provides companies with a contemporary yet classic workspace in a truly desirable location. The central Notting Hill location means Tube stations are often less than a five-minute walk away and there are offices to suit small businesses as well as teams of over 100 people. Companies can rent commercial premises on a private or shared capacity and flexible leases make it easy to find serviced or managed properties, depending on the needs of the business.
Notting Hill enjoys a great location with Shepherds Bush to the west, Bayswater and Paddington to the east, and Kensington and Palace Green to the south.
