I never tire of a trip to Ledbury Road; this special gem of a shopping spot tucked between the famous Portobello Road and the hip Westbourne Grove with it's quirky backstreets and pretty gardens. Â If you have a few hours to spare or it's part of a wider tour, this has the 'exclusive club' feel of the Notting Hill set. Â Â Exclusive fashion brands such as Emma Hope, Matches, Joseph and Diane Von Furstenberg sit along side the Nicole Fahri concept store (clothing, home and cafe). Â Baby brands such as Caramel, I love Gorgeous and Petit Bateau make shopping with the baby buggy a joy - for a few hours at least!
A key reason I return is to steal an hour or so in the world of Daylesford Organic. Â I have been returning to their stunning farm store in the Cotswolds for years (blog coming soon) and this is the London version. It's a touch of organic country heaven where one can purchase all manner of breads, deli items and homewares before lunching in their cafe. Â Down the road there's The Ledbury, two michelen star restaurant and round the corner is The Cow; a cozy, stylish british pub. Â If you fancy a mediterranean cafe style lunch then head to Ottolenghi Cafe. Â Stylish clothing bargins are to be found at the glorious Mary Portas Charity ShopÂ for Save the Children.
