""Up West"" London Local Custom Tip by KennetRose

London Local Customs: 711 reviews and 865 photos

Londoners talk about going "up west" when going to the centre of town (the "West End") shopping or for a night out. This is true even in Notting Hill, which is due west of the West End, so a Notting Hiller going up west will actually be travelling due east.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
