Flea Market Shopping
Find something old and something new at Portobello Road Market, where stalls loaded with fresh fruit and vegetables eclipse colorful storefronts. Every Saturday morning the fresh edibles confine themselves to the northern section of the market to make way for valuable antiques, which attract locals and visitors alike with their one-of-a-kind value. Near the north end of the market and the Hammersmith and City Tube station, you'll also find secondhand clothes and new apparel in all the latest styles.

  • 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 »

  • Never fails to put a spring in my step on reaching Portobello. Despite chain stores ever saturation of the area and developers crashing handling of the area, the old market stalls, traders, quirky shops, locals... help keep the old character only slightly frayed at the sides. Visit as often as you can, be mellow before the developers rip the heart out of the community.
  • The Saturday Market is the best time to visit! People from around the world come and visit Portobello to feel British Market. Portobello also became famous when Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts filmed most of the Movie "Nottinghill"
  • 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.
  • Quirky, charming shops with vendors selling cheap souvenirs along the street. It's a good stop for a tourist. Better still is a dreamy stroll around the gorgeous surrounding neighborhood.
  • Another London landmark that you must to see. Portobello is an amazing place, particularly on Saturday. Full of interesting sights, smells and sounds. It is listed as one of the largest antique markets in England. Well recommended

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
