My wife and I visited Portobello Road during a weekday as we were flying out of London before the weekend. There were still various stalls selling a wide variety of things (clothes, foods, antiques, artwork etc) and plenty of shops along the road. We had a good stroll and took a lot of nice photos along the way. Great place... More

dragged the husband here on a hot saturday morning (yes london can get hot sometimes even by a spandiards standard). He ended up having to drag me away. Great stalls, you get a great sense of the locals. Nice little cafes, good quality produce, unique littlestalls. You can get some great souvenirs here. If the weather doesnt look too good... More

You can find almost anything here! Fruits, clothes, antiques, CD/DVDs, accessories, shoes, food, cafes, gifts/souvenirs, paintings, and more!... only if you don't mind the crowd. The market has a warm and bustling feel to it. Not a good place for kids due to the lack of toilets.

It's a long street market where you can spend time if you are interested in old things. But on the sunny and warm day we where there, it was packed with people. I am glad for the 2-3 pubs that are on the street.

Portobello road on a Saturday is crazy. There are vendors in the street selling antiques , food, fresh farm goods, clothing. The regular shops are open as well. The neighborhood is Georgian and it starts at the Nottinghill gate. Its quite pretty with multicolored homes and buildings making us reminiscent of San Francisco. If you aren't fond of crowds its...

This is a fun stroll down this picturesque street with oodles of goodies to view. My favorite was a small woolen shop. This shop has beautiful Scottish and English goods priced far lower than store prices. The ladies were very helpful and fun to talk to. We learned that actor William Devane shopped there. It's must stop if you're looking... More

We went to three different markets and this was by far the best one. Plenty of stalls and a good variety. Bit of a walk from the underground but some good novelty shops on the way there.

What a great street fair! Come with an appetite and some cash. Great prices on clothes, lots to eat: paella, churros, crepes. A wonderful street fair and Notting Hill is a place not to skip!

This is one of the largest flea market/festival market events I have ever been to. It takes place on Saturdays. You can find better bargains there than at some of the stores and tourists traps in London if you look hard enough. Go early before the crowds overrun the place. Great for people watching and doing something different rather than... More
