  • Kind of fun but I was underwhelmed. I guess I'm used to the alameda flea market in SF or LA rose bowl. We got there at 9:30 which would be late for the American flea markets and at that time people we...  more »

  • this market is such a fun experience. Stores along the path as well as vendors set up along the street. the bustle of people is just exciting. plus you get to walk through the beautiful town of Notting Hill and see some really great architecture. Lots of great things to see and purchase and some good food along the way too.
  • Great spot for tourists and locals. You can just walk around and do window shopping - they sell a variety of stuff (food, clothes, accessories, etc.). You can actually buy some cute things there - for yourself or for gifts. Lots of cafes around too, so it's a nice place to have brunch or lunch with friends. You should come on Saturday -that's when the market is the most vibrant.
  • Chelsea Galleries. Some of the best bargains in antiques to be found in London. Very good value for money and honest dealers.
  • A lifelong dream come true. The odd and ingenious varieties of brick-a-brack: from silver tureens and china to furs and jewelry and trendy/retro/chic clothes options, and an impressive spread of foods from around the world or the block. Worth going!
  • Portobello Road, is worth * * we saw 1 1/2 mile of the same, packed with people, best part of experience are the homes along the route. Visit another market...Spend time elsewhere.
