Continuity mistake: When William takes Anna back to his flat, after the orange juice incident. His shirt is stained, she comes into the flat and changes. Then she leaves. When she returns to get her books, his shirt is still stained but after she kisses him the stain is gone. An impressive kiss... (00:16:45)
Continuity mistake: At the bookstore, in the wide shots the surveillance monitor is sitting in the center of four large books, yet in the close-up of the monitor, showing Rufus, the shoplifter, there is another book lying on the larger books, to the left of the monitor.

Continuity mistake: After William leaves the movie set, in the next shot he goes back to the book shop. Seen through the window is the table with the books and globes. Then when Anna is standing near the window, we see that there are completely different kinds of books on the top shelf now. (01:39:10)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When William initially walks into his bookstore after he takes the mail from Martin, on the bookcase he approaches to his right we see close-up some of the books on three shelves, one of which says 'Siberia', and also the two small posters, the bottom says 'Mukiwa' and the top says 'Lonely Planet', tacked to the side of this bookcase. When Anna browses that same bookcase, she looks at the book 'My Turkish Delights'. The books that are on the shelves of the bookcase, and only the top poster that is tacked to the side are now completely different. (00:05:20 - 00:06:35)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: In the 3-shot sequence where Honey is opening her birthday gifts, the shots show the following: 1. Hugh Grant puts a necklace on Honey and she is wearing the hat; 2. She has just opened the hat and is not wearing the necklace; and 3. She is wearing the hat and no necklace. In the following sequence (the competition for the brownie), she is wearing the necklace and no hat. (00:38:00)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where William visits Anna on the set of her period film and they have a discussion near the trailers, the same man pushing a trolley is in not one but three cuts back to Anna.
Continuity mistake: In the scene just before Anna goes into the bookshop with the painting there is an outside shot of the building. In front of the school you can see the woman kneeling down in front of a child but also if you look through the window and door of the shop you can see Will walking in wearing a blue shirt. In the very next scene he is sitting at his desk wearing a pink shirt. (01:39:15)Kara
Continuity mistake: When Hugh character takes Julia Robert's character back to his flat, after the orange juice incident. She isn't wearing her sunglasses in the next shot she leaves the building and she is wearing her sunglasses again. (00:16:30)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Julia Robert's character first goes to Hugh Grant's character's flat, there's a chalkboard that's telling Spike to clean up. It's quite small writing, but in a close-up of Hugh Grant when he's directing her upstairs it's clearly larger. It then goes small again until she comes downstairs, when it goes large and stays that way. (00:12:10)
Continuity mistake: Anyone familiar with Notting Hill will know that the rooftop terrace scenes with Spike and William and later with William and Anna, were not remotely in the same neighbourhood as William's flat with the infamous Blue Door. The rooftop scenes were filmed most likely on rooftop between Ladbroke Grove and Stanley Gardens, while the flat with the Blue Door is located on Westbourne Park Road.
Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Anna opens the door and all the photographers are outside, Spike walks to the front door in his grey underwear. Just before he opens the door the underwear is covering only one butt cheek (his left). The next shot outside the house the underwear is adjusted and covers both butt cheeks but then when he enters the house and is checking himself out in the mirror, his butt cheek is exposed again.
Continuity mistake: The spring closing the front door when Anna first enters the flat (orange juice scene) is upside down when she next enters the flat (escaping the journalists).
