Attractions near the Best Western Phoenix

Portobello Market

Each Saturday, Londoners and visitors make their way across the city to the trendy Notting Hill area of London for the famous Portobello Road Market. The long street of brightly coloured houses and welcoming pubs and cafes is lined with hundreds of market stalls selling antiques, vintage wares and up-and-coming fashion labels.

It’s a vibrant and fun atmosphere, and a must-do if you’re visiting London over a weekend. The best part is that Portobello Road is an easy 15-minute walk from the Best Western Phoenix.

A ride in the park

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and immerse yourself in the English countryside without leaving the city. Stop to smell the flowers of the perfectly manicured Kensington Palace Gardens and stroll through the impressive formal treed avenues of the park, before heading over to the adjoining Hyde Park. Formerly a hunting ground for royalty, this huge Royal Park is still the go-to place for leisurely countryside pursuits in the heart of London.

You’ll pass people running and cycling around the paved tracks, boating and swimming in Serpentine Lake, and even riding horses along Rotten Row. If you’re feeling adventurous, join the riders at Hyde Park Stables and hit the bridleways to complete your English countryside experience.
