Pretty Portobello Jul 05, 2011
This area of Notting Hill is worth a visit, especially on a Saturday when the market stalls are up. If you've seen the film, Notting Hill, then you might want to see the famous 'Travel bookshop' located in Blenheim Crescent. This seems to be a tourist attraction - there are always tourists taking photos whenever I walk past this book store! I did peek my head in once, but must admit that this is not how I like to spend an afternoon in Portobello. I'd suggest walking through the market, soaking up the wonderful, ambiant mix of culture; an array of food stalls, silverware, antiques, clothes... among all of the markets in London, this is a must!!

Portobello Road Market Sep 25, 2010
The Portobello Road Market (www.portobellomarket.org or www.portobelloroad.co.uk) is located in the Notting Hill area of London and has existed since 1837. The Portobello Road Market is open six days a week. The antique market gets started at 5:30am on Saturdays, while the general market opens from 9am to 5:30pm, Mondays through Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and closes at 1pm on Thursdays. Visitors can reach the Portobello Road Market by travelling on the Central Line, Circle Line or District Lines underground to the Notting Hill Station Gate tube stop.

The market takes over most of Portobello Road from Pembridge Road to Golborne Road and has over 1,000 stalls in several arcades and on the street selling clothing, souvenirs, antique furniture, cosmetics, jewelry, collectables, paintings, fresh fruit and vegetables along with other brick-a-brac items. Each street I visited had its own specialty. While wandering the streets of the antique market, I found myself venturing into the fruit and vegetable market followed by the flea Market and was unable to find any bargains. Under the Westway overpass visitors can expect to find many new fashion designers selling their latest creations, some at reasonable prices.

The Portobello Road Market is definitely worth a visit.

We spent a good part of a day just browsing here. So many things to see. I liked Portobello Rd much better than Petticoat Lane.
