About A Boy in Notting Hill
Will takes a call from Marcus while having his hair done
Location: 243 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill, W11 2SE
Description: 'About a Boy' is a 2002 comedy-drama film directed by brothers Chris Weitz and Paul Weitz, based on the novel of the same name by Nick Hornby.
A feel-good comedy that sees Hugh Grant as Will, trying to get more of a life whilst dealing with Nicholas Hoult as Marcus and Academy Award nominee Toni Collette as Fiona.
And so to this location...well this is the hairdresser where Will gets a call from Marcus.
It was called 'Parsons Skott', just off Portobello Road, but it has since closed.
