The Blue Door (Notting Hill)
Location: London, England
Address: 280 Westbourne Park Rd.
Date: September 2015
There is a famous film location which can be found on Westbourne Park Road in London, England. It is located in the Notting Hill area and is from a film of the same name. In Notting Hill, William (Hugh Grant) is a bookstore owner who lives in a flat with a blue painted door. He lives there with his roommate Spike (Rhys Ifrans). In the movie the door and pillars in the photo above are all painted blue. At least when we arrived to check out this location the door was still blue.
In the film, William meets movie star Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) in his bookstore and they start a relationship. Things don't work out until suddenly one day Anna is there at the blue door. She is looking for a place to hide out since some nude photos of her have surfaced in the press. Will agrees to let her stay and they spend the night together. The next morning the press has figured out where Anna is hiding and when Will goes to open the front door he is met with the flash of many cameras. Anna comes to the door and is horrified to realize they know she is there. Despite receiving a warning from William, Spike also ventures out in his underwear. He loves all the attention and strikes a few poses before returning inside very pleased with himself.
We played the part of the paparazzi and snapped a few photos ourselves in order to remember these movie moments.
