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.

What a beautiful market to spend your day. I love notting Hill. You walk between the stalls with everything you could imagine, drinking hot wine and buying things from old football stuff to antique and get lost in the crowd

I made a mistake of going on a Sunday and most of the shops were closed at then! It looked a lot quieter than a lot of the pictures that were uploaded online!

Our first major walk after arriving in London was about 3.5kms up to Portobello Road Market. It was really cold out and when we got there, we were looking for a warm drink. This wasn’t easy to do. Having stated that it was kind of interesting. There was lots of stuff that we didn’t need, for sale. Even if you... More

If you are ever in London on a saturday, this place is a must to visit. They sell wide range of products from vintage items, antiques, clothing, shoes, jewelleries, hats, home decor, china, groceries, fresh fruits and veges, pastries, breads, cookies, and last but not least street foods!! My personal favourite and what they would call me as repeat offenders... More

Last minute decision to visit the market. Great atmosphere, lots and lots of varying stalls. Lots of street food, i just wish we had gone earlier in the day so that we could have spent more time there. Pubs are vey busy and a wait is inevitable.

Portobello is an amazing place, particularly on a Saturday. Full of interesting sights, smells and sounds, however, it is listed as one of the largest Antique markets in Europe/ UK. It may well be but the choice is suprisingly limited. Stall after stall of the same 'stuff'. Rarely you will find a unique stall amongst the hundreds that are there.... More

Another London land mark that you have to see. I love wondering portobello road market. They have market stalls outside which sell a wide range of things. The shops are great with antique shops to delve in and find a bargain. A few cafes which are nice. I just love the bartering and finding a good buy!

Thank Lottelli
