Yes that door. The blue front door that was the entrance to floppy-haired William’s studio flat. In real life far from being a poky flat the door led to the rather plush London abode of film writer and director Richard Curtis the man behind many of the romantic comedies included in this tour. The original door was auctioned off for charity but the replacement is a very satisfying blue colour too thank goodness!
As well as being a popular filming location for the likes of Sliding Doors Love Actually Wimbledon and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason vibrant and cosmopolitan Notting Hill is a fascinating place to visit with the Portobello Road market the street musicians and the street food stalls.
