Hugh Grant - Notting Hill Bookshop To Close

The London store where Hugh Grant romanced Julia Roberts in Notting Hill is to close.

The British actor played the bumbling owner of a quaint bookshop in Notting Hill who becomes involved with a movie star, played by Roberts, in the 1999 romantic comedy.

The book store featured in the film is actually a shoe shop, but it has continued to attract movie fans who make the pilgrimage to see the building.

However, it has now been announced that the store is to close its doors due to rising rents and falling trade, according to the London Evening Standard.
