Last week I joined our Walking Club for a change of scene. Normally we walk in a London park but decided to follow the trail of the Notting Hill film. We met at Notting Hill tube station. Our first stop was the Coronet cinema.....it was drizzling, but we managed a few photographs. Then we went to Bella and Max's house in Lansdowne Road....it is a long time since I saw the film, so I couldn't remember any of it (must get the DVD).. We took photos at the Travel Book Co. and went on to The Blue Door (William's flat) which confused us as it is now painted white. The house was owned by Richard Curtis, the screenplay writer and the original door was auctioned at Christie's.
We stopped for lunch at The Kitchen and Pantry in Elgin Crescent mid walk, a nice place with leather sofas and some outside seating for sunnier days. The rain had stopped when we reached there but chose to sit indoors as it was rather cool.
