Antique market on saturday is the reason lot's of people come here and browse items and check out the area. Notting Hill is nice kind of area. Nice buildings and restaurants. Short walk from Bayswater and accessed via tube from elsewhere.

This area offers an example of typical old London housing and shops. The community offers a variety of shops, pubs and other amenities in addition to some interesting homes and people. It's really busy on weekends so if you can go during the week.

We arrived in Notting Hill with the intention of visiting the Portobello Road markets. Whilst on the way to and from the markets, we took the opportunity to have a good look around this attractive neighbourhood. The marvellous, colourful terrace houses were captivating as were the grand detached houses with their well-manicured gardens. There were also a few streets with... More

Years ago, before Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant had put their mark on the place, it was already a great unpretentious place to visit. And I am glad to say: it still is! Not the least because of Portobello Road and its market but also because of it relaxed feel and atmosphere.

So much fun to see all the pretty different colored houses winding up the road! If you are close by I would try to get by here. There are some touristy stands with fun Stella McCartney knock offs and other more practical items like suitcases. There are also some high end retailers that will add to your shopping fun. Lots...

I'm one of those American Notting Hill the movie fans. So there's no bookstore, but loved my day walking the streets.

Of course some of the larger grand properties are pretty spectacular in the vicinity. Why do tourists flock to Portobello Road, I really can't comprehend. There are no real antiques, only mainly inferior quality bric a brac. The market used to have some good vintage finds decades ago... but alas no longer. There used to be many Caribbean shops and...

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.
