Owner description: Portobello Road is probably the world’s best known market. Though famous for antiques, that’s not all there is. It’s a haven for lovers of fashion, food, books and music; anyone who wants to find something unique or loves a bargain. It’s real London with real people, loads of character and treasure and bargains to discover. We hope you’ll visit soon.

mainly people selling their crap. If you have been to a flea market then you know what to expect. Put this much lower on the priority list

I didn't exactly plan my day but decided to start visiting London from Nottinghill. Coming out from Nottinghill station, I saw a crowd and followed. Portobello Rd Market is quite long and you have shops selling all sorts of stuff. The first section I came to was the antique market. I love this section. There are lots of old stuff... More

I purchased a set of vintage magazines from the 50-70's from an enthusiastic old man here. The covers featured icons such as Audrey Hepburn and lita baron which was a steal for around 3 pound each. It was really interesting to see the style of writing back then & the types of advertisements they produced. If you're into vintage you'll... More

Amazing antiques and food places. Well worth a visit but incredibly busy so be prepared and practice your haggling skills

We went starving... not a good idea. You have to really look around for good food. It is there, but far down the road. A really great market though. Loads of antiques etc. A shoppers paradise!! Vendors very nice. I wish we would have gone in the morning. It was getting dark where we arrived and people were packing up.... More

My friend and I were there on a Saturday and the entire market was full of people. It was so busy but the areas in front of the stands was usually clear of people and some had walk in area so you're battling the tide when you want to stop and look at something. The variety of foods was mouthwatering.... More

Horses for courses but I am not a great fan of massive crowds so we preferred to visit on the Friday rather than the complete market on Saturday. There were enough stalls to make it an interesting morning with something for everyone - antiques, second-hand clothing, food stalls - although we did miss out on a lot of the street... More

Although we knew of this market in all of the years visiting London this was the first time we had been. Very easy to get to just a short walk from the tube, it starts of with antiques and brick abrac and diversifies into cloths, food and many other things. To see it all it is quite a long stroll,...
