London is, and has always been, a commercial city and an agglomeration of nationalities and people from all walks of life, and that’s what made it what it is. Understand something in neighborhood history – and the people who built them and will begin to understand why some districts seem like them.
Notting Hill Take, for example: At the time of the regency (beginning of the nineteenth century) this area was developed in an attempt to capture the queue of the Kensington wealth strata through the park but never really taken off. During the 20th century, the fallen area and large villas were divided into so many small stories. In the 1950s and 1960s, this was the cheapest place to live in London, on the other hand, and was founded by African-Caribbean immigrants brought to the United Kingdom for cheap labor after World War II, and created the Carnival, one of the largest street festivals around the world.
Its legacy still lives and many still live in the area, but these days you have to win a lottery to afford a home in the neighborhood. It exploded in popularity, and gentrified and changed in just 25 years one of the city’s most affluent areas.
