Our Notting Hill escorts are considered to be amongst the London elite, just like the area itself, however the local affluent reputation has only come about in the last few decades with a series of gentrification projects and of course the writing of Richard Curtis to add that touch of Hollywood glamour!
Notting Hill was originally to be called Kensington Park however the planners of the time preferred that there be no borrowed glory from nearby Kensington and instead chose to modernise the old saxon name ‘Knottynghull’. This was unfortunate for the Ladbroke family who were the main land owners and developers at the time as they had already named two new streets as Kensington Park Road and Kensington park gardens. Indeed there was a great deal of presumption that the name would be agreed as the original telephone prefix 727 is based on the old telephone exchange name of PARk however Notting Hill was the given name, preferable to other suggestions which related to the potteries and piggeries in the area. Much of the area is still laid out according to the original plan with beautiful, well-proportioned houses surrounding secret garden squares. It is these squares that attracts the new modern professionals as they did back in the 18th Century and many of our Notting Hill escorts have spent time with local gentlemen in their homes here.
There were so many plans for Notting Hill to be the next big thing at the time of its development. A racecourse was laid out in 1837 which ran around the hill itself but various problems caused its closure just 4 years later and houses were built on the site. Many of these houses are still in situ however their size has rendered them too expensive for use as a whole today. They are instead, converted into multiple occupancy in the form of apartments and flats but originally, they were designed to attract the noble classes and those who had large households of servants and staff. Despite being somewhat downsized, they are still light and airy and in great demand. Many of these apartments have access and views across beautiful private garden squares or ‘paddocks’ as they were originally called. Our local escorts in Notting Hill are frequent visitors to these properties as they tend to be owned by successful city professionals who have capitalised on the growing reputation of the area.
Portobello Road market is a notable street market which runs the length of Notting Hill. It draws millions of tourists every year who are all looking to find that unique antique piece or trendy item of clothing. Our Notting Hill escorts love to wander around the market on a Saturday, even if they are not looking for anything in particular. The atmosphere and vibrancy really lift the spirit and the street food is certainly worth a try. Whilst there are plenty of top class restaurants and brasseries in the area, you could try a date with a difference and spend your time with our escorts Notting Hill trying the exotic flavours of the market food, that or try and find the famous ‘blue door’ which featured in the eponymous film.
