If you love street food -- crepes with Nutella and strawberries or freshly squeezed juice, anyone? -- and browsing through handmade crafts, antiques and collectibles, you must head to Notting Hill and the famous Portobello Road market. We visited on a gorgeous Sunday and walked from block to block down the hill, perusing vintage maps, silver, handmade scarves, children's toys... More

An iconic venue in London, a visit is s must. Given its popularity, be prepared for large crowds, on arrival we stopped at a cafe bar sat outside on a lovely sunny day and watched the world go bye soaking up the festive atmosphere which was complimented by some very talented baskers. There are numerous antiques shops which hold wonders... More

Got up early and walked Portobello Rd after taking district line to Notting Hill. Loved the secondhand shops not far from the subway station. Then meandered up to the markets. Great fruit and veges. Lots of interesting photo opportunities.

Notting Hill, is a great part of West London, the world famous Portobello Market, which starts at the top end of Notting Hill, going down the hill into Notting Real, from high end antique dealers into the real every day life of fruit and veg stall holders, the divide of rich and poor is clear, however still harmonious this melting...

We had a good family day out there. Not much for the kids but fascinating objects for those who like antiques and odd articles. Cool day out with a stop at the famous door of Notting Hill movie.

This is a place to visit with plenty of time to be able to enjoy it. Look for the blue door from the movie of Nottingham Hill, once you find do not leave without a picture that proved you found it. Visit the antiques shops around, enjoy the market, and take a moment to sit and drink a beer

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
