Central Line Walk – Day 6
Queensway to Notting Hill Gate
On leaving Queensway tube station I continue walking west along Bayswater road passing some red houses. As I get closer to Notting Hill Gate the street becomes lined with shops.
Notting Hill Gate to Holland Park
Near to the station are two of Notting Hill’s cinemas. The Coronet was used in the film ‘Notting Hill’ with Hugh Grant.
Holland Park to White City
The next part of my route is on Holland Park Avenue.

I pass over the roundabout and along Uxbridge Road. If Shepherd’s Bush station was open then I’d end this section here. At the moment it is being redeveloped so I turn into Wood Lane.
The most famous sight on Wood Lane is the BBC Television Centre, which will be familiar to anyone who watches the BBC. Today (14/03/08) people are queuing for the Sport Relief program which is to be broadcast in the evening.
White City to East Acton
To the north of the station is a second BBC building, the BBC White City. Beyond this is the Westway, which is a major road.
