  • Very nice market sprouts of street life. Perfect to spend a Saturday morning. Delicious street food and small stalls offering a bit of each. Great vintage, where you can find that little bit extra apparel. Tip is to be there as early as possible, preferably already at the opening time at 9.

  • If you like browsing in new and old things and antiques, kitsch: must-see! For more than a visit, Portobello market, embedded in the Bohemian district of Notting Hill, offers curiosities, funny, and all sorts of Kaufenswertes - and sure enough surprised. But as well as at the WR flea market or probably at all: you gotta love Menschen(Massen) ;-)

  • As soon as you step out from Notting Hill tube stop is all you need to do is follow the crowd. Go to the weekend. Both great places to Notting Hill and Portobello. If you have been less time between Camden and Portobello Road Market, like I say, definitely.

  • 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.
