  • Never visited before and went on a Saturday. Very long street that was heaving with people. We walked the length of the market but most of it was rubbish so hardly anything decent to buy unless you...

  • Lovely touristy place for tourists and also for the locals. Being a Londoner it was my first ever visit and absolutely loved it. Vendors were selling different sorts of items likes jewelry, decorative stuff, clothing, shoes and food. Food stalls were on the other side of the road with a variety of cuisine all around world. Best part was few of them were selling halal and vegetarian. It was a hot day and it was crowded but we loved the walk all around, enjoyed with slush. Remember half part is closed on Sunday, so better avoid Sundays.
  • This is one of the most important places that one should not miss when visiting London , it is such an interesting colorful market that has lots to see , nice and very interesting, so entertaining , and so great to walk through and see what all the traders are offering, not to forget that it also has the Distillery pub which had been shown in one of James Bond s movies . The place is so crowded yet it is so good to look at all the interesting items of some antique pieces, for those who are collecting stamps or cards or antique items , it’s a must visit place . What a great experience. 👌👍👍
  • One of the most unique places to visit in London! You can literally find anything and everything in here. From antiques shops to food places and everything in between. Make sure you don’t miss the stores, restaurants and cafes on the sides of the street. It can get crazy busy and chaotic on a Saturday afternoon.
  • Fantastic street market with vendors selling all sorts. Clothes, jewelry, decorations and all kinds of bits and bobs you can imagine. My favourite part was the street food. There should be something for everyone there, as the selection is so diverse. Venezuelan, Peruvian, Italian, Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, French, Jamaican, Mexican and the list goes on. They also have plenty if you're vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free. So no excuses ;) I would definitely recommend going there, no matter if you live in London, or are a tourist. It is an absolute must to visit this.
  • Great market in Notting Hill and the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Used to be antique market but nowadays only a handful of those shops last. The rest of the market has become in food, souvenirs, handcrafts and jewelry. Depending on the day you may find different shops, Saturday is supposed to be the day with the widest variety of products. Take care of your personal belongings as it gets very crowded.
