GOLBORNE ROAD#NOTTING HILL

Golborne Road is located just off Ladbroke Grove at the northen end of Portobello Road Market.
It was named after Dean Golbourne, once the vicar or St. John’s Church in Paddington.
Until the middle of the nineteenth century it was just a country footpath farm, but in 1870 the road was widened and shops were built.
Today, this very lively street also known as “Little Morocco”, is home for many Moroccan restaurants and shops offering products typical of their beautifully colourful land.
Golborne Road hosts a street market every day except Sunday.
Dani and her friend Michael took a day off to walk down this extremely inspiring scenery.
The two of them had not seen much of each other lately so they planned to meet up for a catch up surrounded by the artistic vibe always present in this neighbourhood.
Vintage clothes and antique furnitures displayed all around dressing the walls, the pavements, the doors and the windows, scattered here and there in the most natural way!!!
The inviting smell coming from the various Moroccan and Portuguese restaurants and cafes delighted the nostrils of the two friends and the time passed by pleasantly.
Enjoy the snaps lovely Pips!!!
With love from Dani. xxx

Golborne Road e’ locata presso Ladbroke Grove nella parte nord di Portobello Road Market.
Ha preso il nome da Dean Golbourne, una volta vicario della Chiesa di San John a Paddington.
Fino alla meta’ del diciannovesimo secolo non era altro che un passaggio rurale, ma nel 1870 la strada e’ stata allargata e si sono costruiti i primi negozi.
Oggi, questa strada vivace conosciuta anche come la “Piccola Marocco”, e’ casa per molti ristoranti e negozi marocchini che offrono prodotti tipici della loro terra meravigliosamente colorata.
Ogni giorno c’e’ il mercato tranne la Domenica.
Dani e il suo amico Michael si sono presi il giorno libero per camminare lungo questo scenario estremamente ispiratore.
I due non si erano visti molto ultimamente e allora hanno organizzato d’incontrarsi per fare due chiacchiere circondati dall’atmosfera artistica sempre presente in questi dintorni.
Vestiti vintage e pezzi d’antiquariato esposti tutt’attorno vestono i muri, i marciapiedi, le porte e le finestre, sparpagliati qui’ e la’ nella maniera piu’ naturale.
L’odore invitante proveniente dai vari ristoranti Marocchini e Portoghesi hanno deliziato le narici dei due amici ed il tempo e’ passato piacievolmente.
Buon divertimento con le foto Bella Gente!!!
With love from Dani. xxx
