Notting Hill Gate
Built on the Porto Bello and Kensington Gravel Pit farms in the 19c Notting Hill was a potentially volatile mix of rich and poor. However, apart from some early race riots nearly forty years ago, it has evolved into one of the most harmonious cosmopolitan concoctions anywhere in the world. People there are proud to say they get along. It is in fact an unusual arty bohemian melting pot of rich and poor, black, white and everything else, antiques and junk, innovative and social projects. It was the birthplace of 'whole foods' in the U.K. and host Europe's largest street carnival. It is a most interesting place to visit.
