About A Boy in Notting Hill
Will's love interest Rachel lived here before he blows it
Location: 1 St Stephen's Crescent, Notting Hill, W2 5QT
Description: And here it is...another 'About A Boy' location to be seen on your About A Boy walk around London.
This was the home of the home of Rachel (played by Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz), the single mother who Will (Hugh Grant) develops a crush on.
Will lets Rachel believe that Marcus is his son in order to appear interesting to her. Later, in an attempt to be honest with her, he reveals that Marcus is not really his son, but his lie backfires and their relationship ends.
'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.
It's a story of a cynical, immature young man who is taught how to act like a grown-up by a little boy.
