A new walk for me this Saturday – Notting Hill and Portobello Market.
It’s been fun doing the research, as it is an area I used to know a decade or more ago to visit, and I go there periodically as my accountant is just by the market,
but have never really looked much at its history.
I think my favourite person so far is Count D’Orsay, a man whose debts were so huge he had to flee from Paris to escape his creditors. His money problems came from dressing very well and gambling very badly.
We’ll meet outside Holland Park tube station for a 10.45 start. The cost is £9, £7 for over 65s and full-time students.
