There are better market areas than this. It makes for a nice stroll from Kensington Palace in eastern Hyde Park, but you will have a better time at Camden Market or Borough Market in Southwark.

I have known this part of London for nearly 40 years and I think it is an interesting and cosmopolitan place IF you get away from the tourist hotspots such as Portobello Market. I regard Portobello now as a total tourist trap unless you go early on a Saturday morning when the serious buyers go and/or make it to the... More

Notting Hill and the Portobello Road street fair are great attractions to spend the time in on a Saturday afternoon in London. We can find from hot delicious meals sold in the food market to vintage posters from the 20s, antiques and other delicacies for the eyes (and sometimes for the wallet). Going early in the day avoids big crowds... More

This is a wonderful historic neighborhood in London. Portobello Road has a great outdoor market. What I loved was leaving the hustle and bustle of London for a few hours. It is quite busy on the weekend, but it is still very charming and I just got lost in the colorful houses, architecture, street artists and antique stores. Portobello Road... More

This is a trendy and lovely area in London. Very chic with boutique stores, restaurants and colourful beautiful residential homes. Really pretty with a lot of wonderful photo opportunities - not to mention that this was the site where the movie was filmed! Worth visiting!

as many before me noted, on the weekend it is very very busy - I prefer to wander around during the week - no late night dining in the area on Sunday! Found a great oyster place in Portobello Road. Biking around in this area is fun (not recommended on the weekend!)

I am in love with this place. The neighborhood is wonderful and a walk on the streets is amazing. If you visit on a Saturday you can visit the market as well. Excellent place for street shopping and great choice of food from all parts of the world.

There is no reason to wait until crowded Saturday to visit the shops, you can buy trendy cheap clothes and eat simple junky food any day.

So, first of all, you have to go a while in to get to the place where the market is held, and the best day to see how it looks like is Sunday. The neighborhood is wonderful, and you can just walk of the main road to see some beautiful houses and green areas. The movie set, the blue door... More

Totally guilty of seeking out the town due to my never ending love for the film, but if you are looking to go out of the city Notting Hill is the place. A quick ride on the tube and you are in a posh, charming pocket of London. Great cafes, boutiques, and very dog friendly. It was our whole group's... More
