"Portobello Road" Shopping Tip by Galahad

Shopping, London: 65 reviews and 60 photos

Favorite thing: Visit Portobello Road even if the market is closed

Fondest memory: Buying 'Rare Breed' meat from 'Kingsland - The Edwardian Butcher' (140 Portobello Road).
Watching coffee being roasted and then buying tea and coffee from 'The Tea and Coffee Plant' (170 Portobello Road - they may have temp moved along the road whilst they refurbish their shop).
Visiting a bookshop called 'Books for Cooks' (4 Blenheim Crescent). A little road just round the corner from 'The Tea and Coffee Plant'
This is the area in which the film 'Notting Hill' was made.

Address: Various
