What is the character of Notting Hill and Portobello Road W11?
To understand the demographics of Notting Hill and Portobello Road, you need to understand something of the area's history. The W11 area was originally developed for residential purposes in the 19th Century by the Ladbroke family (after whom nearby Ladbroke Grove is named). They hoped to entice the wealthy, but in fact it was the middle classes who arrived. During the social upheaval of the early 20th Century; however, these middle class families moved out of their large Notting Hill town houses and often sold them to aggressive landlords such as the notorious Peter Rachman.
The result was that they were sub-divided into multi-occupancy units and let out to the poor and desperate. The area became home to numerous West Indian immigrants and their increasing numbers eventually led to racially-motivated attacks and the infamous Notting Hill Riots of the late 1950s. This brought the state of the area to general attention and began the process of cleaning up the slums, which was undertaken during the 1960s and 1970s. By the 1980s, Notting Hill was on the way up and it's essentially continued to rise ever since.
