Portobello Road in 2006 - 21st Century

St Joseph's Close, a private housing estate, was built in 1986. It is situated on the Portobello Road, north of the famous Portobello Road street market. It lies between Raddington Road and Golborne Road. The gated estate is surrounded by council and housing trust properties. The Dominican Convent and Spanish School are on the opposite side of the road. This part of the Portobello Road is in North Kensington. It is very different in character from the part shown in the film ‘Notting Hill’.

To discover the origin of the name St Joseph's go to the next screen. Also look carefully at the wall around the houses.
