Doors of Portobello Road 

Exploring Notting Hill, just over a week ago, we were treated to some gorgeous doorways along this famous, vibrant road.  Let’s take a walk ….



Each of the entrances to these terraced houses have such a lot of individuality and personality.  





And, at No 22, the the former home of George Orwell. 

That’s enough walking.  Time for a cup of tea …. or maybe a gin & tonic.

    I used to live right at the bottom of Portobello …. I’m sure I didn’t really appreciate it at the time (I was 20) – thank you for the blissful reminder 😊

    I love the wisteria and the climbing rose. Lovely doors!

      Thanks!! I’m with you. Isn’t that wisteria just amazing. And so pretty against the plum coloured wall.

    Holy wisteria, Janet, those are all great doors! 🙂 Whenever I think of Portobello Road, I think of the Deborah Crombie books which I dearly love. Of course, mushrooms also come to mind, but… 🙂

      Me too! I think mushrooms- or I used to. Now I’ll think of gin. (There was a distillery a little further down the road)

    So much pretty 🙂
    No doubt you had a wonderful time strolling around there.
    So how was the tea or gin & tonic?

    I think I need to visit this street because these are some of the most gorgeous doors I’ve ever seen. The doors are beautiful, the hardware amazing, and the Wisteria just causes my gardening pulse to quicken. 🙂

      Each tiny little forecourt, or front yard, had its own exquisite little garden. And each was as unique as its door. It’s an inspiring street.

    Beautiful, no wonder it’s so expensive to buy a property there. Like Judy, I loved the Wisteria.

    • JanetRimmington May 12, 2017 / 12:16 pm

      Yes, I have to admit, everything was expensive. From property to s cup of coffee.

    Oh my! I am so smitten with #58! Wow, that’s a gorgeous welcome! 🙂

    • JanetRimmington May 22, 2017 / 12:24 am

      I’m with you!! #58 is a real show stopper!! Thanks for stopping by and commenting 😊

    Your doors are amazing. I have a friend who thinks I’m crazy for photographing doors but I think they have so much character and are wonderful subjects for photography.

      Thank you!! I think Doors speak to the architecture and the personality of a place. Although each of these houses were pretty much identical, the doorways are utterly individual. It made for a fun walk.

    Love the variety of colours and the personality it projects. It’s a very colourful area,
