Local Area Information:
There are two tube lines near the house. Queens Park station, just a 7 minute walk from the house, is on the Bakerloo Line and also has London Overland trains running from it. Westbourne Park station is on the Hammersmith&City and Circle lines and is around a 10 minute walk away.
There is an extensive network of bus routes from the nearby main roads that take you all around London. Many of them are night buses.
Shopping and Entertainment:
Portobello Road Market is about a ten minute walk from the house. Goldborne Road, which you come to first, is an extension of Portobello Road and also has shops, restaurants and coffee shops along it. On a Saturday this street is buzzing with stalls selling everything from designer clothes, antiques, food, jewellery and everything you could ever think of. On week days and Sundays there are fresh fruit and vegetable stores willing to make bargains especially at the end of the day to get rid of their produce. There are great boutique shops, café’s, restaurants and pubs along Portobello Road and in all the small side roads surrounding it. On Portobello Road is the Electric Cinema, a unique and exciting cinema with large chairs and sofas to watch films in style.
The choice of restaurants, bars and pubs is overwhelming, there is a option to suit every budget and taste, covering all local and international styles of cuisine.
The Canal is just three minute's walk away. If you turn right on the Canal you will find peace and quiet, if you turn left you will walk through little Venice and then to Regents Park, London Zoo, Lords Cricket Ground and even to Camden, where there is a huge (and slightly bizarre) market on Sundays. There are also some lovely pubs along the Canal, some with gardens on the water.
Jump on the number 28 bus and in 20 minutes you'll be in Queensway where there are great shops, restaurants and cafés. There is a bowling alley and an ice rink at the top of the main road as well as the entrance to the beautiful Hyde Park & Kensington Gardens, two of London’s largest parks. At the other end of Queensway you will find a swimming pool and Spa called Porchester Spa - London's oldest spa (built in 1929).
