"Notting Hill - Portobello Market" Other Markets Tip by CADspark

Other Markets, London: 69 reviews and 95 photos


Portobello Market Portobello Road, W11 Fri/Sat 9am-5pm; Mon-Wed general market open same hours; Thurs 9am-1pm Underground: Notting Hill Gate or Ladbroke Grove
Well, first thing's first. You MUST, of course, head to this mile-long street market. As practically everything else in Notting Hill, it is achingly hip. Come here to buy your choice of antiques (Westbourne Grove end), arts and crafts, fruit and veg (round about the crossroads with Westbourne Park Road), second-hand clothes and jewellery (under Westway), bric a brac and even organic food. Friday may be the best day to go; Saturdays are very, very busy. Not really the sort of market where you might find an amazing bargain, but definitely worth a visit. And, after all, it is featured countless times in the film.
