Hand-Drawn Maps of London: #2 Notting Hill

NottingHillhanddrawnmap.jpg

We asked you to draw maps of your local areas and you didn’t disappoint. Here’s the first in what will surely be a long-running series, courtesy of reader Jorge Ruiz. He’s highlighted his favourite things about Notting Hill, including plenty of pubs, some ducks and the ‘fake houses’ of Leinster Gardens. Did he miss anything? What would you add?

Note: to increase the image size, hitting Ctrl and ‘+’ should enlarge the page in most browsers (at least on a PC).

Feeling inspired? Doodle your own neighbourhood and send a photo in to tips@londonist.com. Please make sure labels are reasonably large so they’re easy to read in our column width.

    LOVE!

    I think mini-Asia/Middle East needs to be added to the area by Waitrose and maybe some mention of the armed guards outside the Israeli embassy on Kensington Palace Gardens would be worthwhile.

    Is there any chance we could have the images a bit bigger so we can actually read the text??

    • M@

      It tells you how in the text. But for future maps, I’ll link off to a Flickr version.

        Yeah CTRL+zooming doesn’t increase the resolution, it just gets more pixelly. Still can’t read some of the text. Thanks.

    You missed out the best Italian pizza restaurant in London. (Should be neat the ‘not a great coffeeshop’ comment).
