Address 282 Portobello Rd London W10 5TE, UK

Notting Hill and Portobello are in the center of one of the most powerful covers of The Clash’s discography.

Located in the heart of Notting Hill, the site of the clashes between police and demonstrators during the 1976 carnival riots has long since been restored to its former glory. Just a stone’s throw from the famous bookstore in the film Coup de Foudre in Notting Hill and Portobello Market, this shopping street now offers everything you’d expect from such a place.

Back in the day, and up until the early 1980s, the police frequently carried out heavy raids during the carnival. Today, mentalities have changed and the municipality encourages the organization of the event.
