You can find everything. Craft, vintage, masse production, a little bit to everyone. Personally it's not my favorite marked in London, but I still go here every time I'm in London. The vibe that's there at times just can't be described. It's as amazing at summer as winter.

This market is full of second, antique goods, vintage clothing as well as new items. It is well worth a visit just to see it and enjoy the atmosphere there. Everyone is so friendly and there is lots to see and ake in.

We've spent a half day at Notting Hill, mostly ath the Portobello Road Garden. I've been to lots of places around the world, but I think it is the best. I do not really like the "market-feeling", but Portobello has it's very unique athmosphere. (Please note the street musicians, there were to guys playing with guitar and drum live using... More

We visted 3 times during our short stay. We loved the atmosphere, the variety of shops and stalls, the street food and generally everything. So much going on, street performers on every corner, delicious smells wafting everywhere and a cocophony of sound from record stalls, people talking, street vendors selling their wares. Just great, we'll be back.

The best thing I loved about this market were all the antique stores. You could find almost anything. And then the second best was the food. I had 5 meals in the span of an hour trying out everything. Take your camera and go on a Friday and enjoy it. Not to be missed.

I have lived in London on and off for years, and always find that draw on a Saturday morning to stroll down to Portobello Road for the sites and sounds that make this place fun to visit. The vendors don't change so much, but that sameness sometimes is not a bad thing (if that makes sense) The pubs along the... More

If you are going to be in London on a Friday or Saturday, Portobello Road Market is a must-see. There is probably no better way to get to know the real London than by going to one of the many markets. Portobello, while not as edgy as others, is still a great place for a beginner market-goer. Just don't have... More
