Overall: 5 Other comments: Location: the starting point at Notting Hill gives a nice latitude for what is coming, antiques, food, clothes, new stuff and a lot more.

I went on a Friday, walking from the tube station I passed the beautifully kept colourful houses of Notting Hill, one currently for sale, only 3 million! Not all of Portobello market was out but it was a lot less crowded than a Saturday and there were enough stalls out to make it enjoyable, the stall holders were extremely friendly... More

If you get on your bed. Turn your knob to the left and tap three times and say take me to Portabello Road then you'll truly be singing this song as you shop.... it's true today as always...

My husband and son, with much hesitation, decided to go with me on a trip to Portobello Road Market during our recent trip to London. To say we were pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. After walking and looking and chatting and shopping, we saw everything from great antiques to new fashions, jewelry, home decor, import textiles, hand crafted items... More

We visited the market on a Saturday morning - wise choice! There is so much to see, little antique places full of trinkets, books, art and bric-a-brac. A morning is not enough. As you walk through it you notice that it is laid out in sections, that is helpful once you note what you need. If it is food then... More

Worth a visit.. Even just for the delightful scenery of the Notting Hill houses. The market is quirky and interesting. Some little gems to be found!

It was a really nice Saturday stroll. A lot of knickknacks. It's fun even if you don't buy anything :)

Branded a bit posey and overpriced, it never disappoints. Worth walking the length from Notting Hill Gate End and then taking a bus back to the West End - far cheaper than those dismal hop-on, hop-off things. Plenty of nice places to eat and pause.

We visited around midday - quite busy, but although I'm 'one of the walking wounded', in disabled-speak, it was relatively easy to see everything my wife and I wished to see. A very wide choice of goods on display, but we did not feel intimidated by this as we knew exactly what kind of things we wished to see before... More
