  • I state that the nearest tube is Ladbroke Grove, so either the yellow (Circle) or pink (Hammersmith & City) and not as erroneously reporting TripAdisor. That said, on Saturday there is a little bit of everything, from food to vintage. Go for it ... but only on Saturday.

  • If you’ve happened to see the movie Notting Hill, you know what you’re in for! This is a charming, colourful, vibrant part of London, just off Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. If you walk up Portobel...  more »
  • The background of the film Notting Hill, London, where it cannot fall in travel, antique shops and vintage shops in one place. Featured product (s) for each store to sell if you have time look slow.

  • I love this place so much. Everything from the nice antiques to the hipster shops where you can come across unique finds. Make sure to walk all the way to the end because it's all worth it. You can get great street food from around the world as well which is always a reason to make me excited when I go there. My personal favourite is the popcorn chicken. So delicious... Don't forget to bargain at the many stalls because often the prices go down or you get some sort of deal. Do reserve a couple of hours for it because if you want to look around at your own pace you will find that it takes longer than expected. Have fun!
  • The most amazing array of new and old....Everything! So much to look at and buy from clothes to shoes to food and drink. The international food area is a great idea. The stall holders are happy to tell you about their dishes and give you a little sample. The vintage area is a good place to bag a bargain on your vintage additions. It's a fun,friendly place to visit. And considering the numbers of people who fill the roads and pavements it's so clean and tidy, so well done to the street staff
  • You can find the most amusing and interesting things you can imagine here! Didn't do much of shopping around here but tried a lot of food stalls. The olive stall was brilliant! We also tried a 100% Falafel stall. Do give it a try! Worth every penny. It's a long walk down Portobello so be sure to wear comfortable footwear! The market is crowded but not unreasonably so. There are lots of pretty houses down the road which make for good photos ops.
  • The market on Saturday is a very lively place. The street is full of people perusing everything, early editions and collections of work of famous authors, old cameras, stacks and stacks of original vinyl records and decorations from all over the world. Every c couple of stalls mouthwatering smells of street food, snacks, exotic drinks and garden grown vegetables are attracting you closer. Portobello road market is a great choice for a day out with your family or friends!
  • Such a colorful place! You can quench your thirst for street shoping here. Shops offering ranges from antiques to books to street side twisted potato on a stick to modern cuisine. They even have a shop for selling unique and colorful number plates. Beautiful, colorful and well maintained houses line up the road above the shops. Tour on this road is best enjoyed on foot.
