Portobello road market snakes its way from trendy Notting Hill Gate to less affluent Ladbroke Grove. Along the way, the market stalls change from high-end art, jewelry, and antiques to vintage, to thrift store with a lot of interesting and varied food items

Great road market. All kind of things, varieties of food and fruits and all kind of people too. Almost got pick pocketed, couldn’t catch hold of the doer as it was very crowded. Do not carry backpack or place your bag infront of you instead.

World famous antique market, with street food and a wide range of good, street music. Cool day to chill out. It’s more classy and worth spending sometime to walk around Chepstow villas, Nottinghill as well. I personally like it more than Camden Town.

We've been visiting the market for donkey's years......a holiday must whenever we're in London. To be fair, the stalls and items for sale haven't changed very much over the years (though the prices have) but it's always a lovely morning spent wandering through the various...More

Plenty of market stalls here today selling a good variety of wares but no antique arcades open. Lots of tourists and shops selling poor quality knick knacks.

Its located in the Notting Hill area. I like the design & pastel colors of the apartments. The roads are line with stores selling clothing, antique, bric-a-brac, fruit and vegetable. I did enjoy the vibes & energy.

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

The location is definitely Notting Hill. We were there recently in April. It is extremely busy on weekends. We also went thru the week, but not so many vendors thru the week. It was very enjoyable.

Which to do first on a Saturday? Portobello/Buckingham (15 Replies)
We're planning to visit Portobello Road Market, for the antiques vendors, and Buckingham Palace (will purchase State Room tours), on a Saturday in August. Which would be essential to do early in the day? We'll visit one in the morning and e other after lunch . Thanks

Portobello Road Market - Dec 26th (2 Replies)
Does anyone know whether Portobello Road market will be open this year on Saturday Dec 26th? Their website says they are closed on bank holidays but I believe this year the bank holiday is Dec 28th instead of Dec 26th. Thank you.

I just have the same information that you have, so it looks to me that officially the Portobello road market is open on Dec 26th. But I think if I owned a stall I would take the day off!

Any suggestions for a good lunch near Portobello Road market on a Saturday? The last time I went it was so crowded I think we finally gave up - would like to plan ahead this time!

I'm not sure how far down you ventured in the market but I do know that there wasfruit and veggies as well as food being cooked outside ( seafood , etc) and I do believe that I saw restaurants in that particular area . Does anybody know the names of the restaurants that are involved in the market?
