What Makes It Special
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.
This market is an Aladdin’s cave of antiques, food, fashion and blends the new with the old beautifully. A true market that sets up on the day with shops both sides too. Really busy but worth every effort to soak up a market atmosphere and...More
It’s best on a Saturday, as all the stalls are out, whereas other days it isn’t a full showing.
This does mean that it’s the busiest time to visit, with thousands of tourists descending onto the street.
As long as you’re not in a rush...More
Do not bother to go - least of all on a Saturday. Packed with tourists who could not carr less about antiques. Stall are full of junk. Defintely not worth a trio. Try the Jubilee Market near Covent Garden if you like antiques.
When you walk here you'd almost forget that you are in London.
It is a completely different atmosphere than the city center (which is awesome as well). There are a lot of lovely shops with very special items.
Looking for custom made items, antiques or...More
Lived in London all my life and this was my first visit to the market. We went on a Saturday, the weather was warm and we got there about 11am. It was extremely busy with lots of tourists and locals

Whether a bargain hunter or just a bargain browser, this is the place for you! Tons of small stores and stalls to peruse: antiques, collectibles, clothing, souvenirs, fruits and veggies, odds-and-ends - you're sure to come across something you'll find irresistable! For my wife, it...More
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
Yes it certainly is. We were there at 4pm on a Saturday and it was going strong. You are a short hop on a tube or taxi to Kensington (Harrods etc) or Hyde Park. It really is a great atmosphere at the market.

I can’t comment with any certainty but I feel like the royal wedding will stop the nation and if the markets are on(which is probable) they will most likely be quite empty. For me the best part was actually the food section... More
I can’t comment with any certainty but I feel like the royal wedding will stop the nation and if the markets are on(which is probable) they will most likely be quite empty. For me the best part was actually the food section. There were one or two unique antique shops which were really cool but they are also open mid week if you wanted to just visit them. The market stalls themselves(other than the food) I felt were a little over rated. Again there were the select few that I was impressed by but overall I felt like it was all a bit of a hype. Just my personal opinion. There are a heap of markets in London. Maybe look into the them all and see what fits your taste. My preference was the borough markets which is food oriented but a little on the pricey side. Also the convent garden markets were quite cool and a close second.
