My husband and I moved to our flat in central Barcelona where we run painting and sketching holidays (la-terraza-atico), so my lovely daughter Saskia, who lives in our ground floor flat in the same building, will welcome you, tell you about the area and manage our family home whilst we are away.

Area Information
Bracewell Road is a cherry tree lined street with two parks right on our doorstep. The smaller one 'Little Wormwood Scrubs', has an outdoor gym, adventure playground, and lovely walking spaces. The larger one 'Wormwood Scrubs Park' (top of the road turn left and cross road) is worth taking a walk around or even a run. Bracewell Road is a quiet, safe area with friendly neighbours.
All amenities are close by and within a few minutes walk. The No 7 bus at the top of our road goes to Portobello Market, Paddington Station (Heathrow Express) Oxford street and the West End. The No 70 goes direction Queensway and Hyde Park, or change onto the No 52 bus at Ladbroke Grove for Harrods, Knightsbridge, Victoria Station and The Tower of London. The undergrounds (2 different ones, 2 different lines) are about 12 minutes walk. Westfield, the biggest shopping centre in Europe, is 15 minutes walk or take the bus. It boasts amazing shops, cinemas and a huge selection of restaurants.
I suggest when you arrive at my house you obtain from the little shops at the top of my road, an Oyster Card. This is a 'top up card', costs ?5 and essential for traveling around on London public transport and will save you money. Redeemable on your departure. Or buy a London Pass on-line.
A small supermarket (Tesco) is at the top of our road and sells the essentials, conveniently open from 6am to 11pm, 7 days a week. And a traditional English pub The Pavilion is 5 minutes walk. Great for a traditional Sunday lunch. There is also a chemist, a kebab house, Micks well known Fish and Chips shop, a hairdresser and nail bar.
There is a Thai restaurant really close by with delicious food, great takeaway too. And of course Portobello has lots of lovely places to eat and drink. The Market is on all week but the famous days are Friday and Saturdays.
If you're renting a car there are meters at the top of the road (?1.10 an hour, max stay 5 hrs), and a free parking road not far but it's usually very hard to get a space. Outside our house is not permitted to park Monday to Friday 8.00 - 18.30. Saturday 8.00 - 13.30

Please note, Notting Hill Gate is about 1.7 miles/35 mins walk away. We are Ladbroke Grove area, North Kensington. Take a look at G maps and you'll see exactly where we are.
PS: May I suggest a very good cab company should you need collecting from Heathrow or any of the other London airports. This cab company is cheap and reliable and I have been using them for years. They are called 'Just Airports' and can be found on the web, based in Wembley.
