Portobello Market

London has many markets, but one of the best is this one - and we're not just saying that because this is a guide to Notting Hill! The world-famous Portobello Market is absolutely unmissable on your visit to Notting Hill (both as something to visit, but also physically, seeing as it's one one of the most popular roads).

The mile-long street market sells a wide variety of goods, clothes, antiques and even food, with different items being sold on different days. It is open every day, except for Sunday.

On weekdays , you'll find a wonderful fresh fruit and veg market, generally located between where Portobello Road intersects Colville Terrace and Westbourne Park Road.

On Fridays and Saturdays there is a funky selection of clothes stalls, located under the Westway. Beyond that is a plethora of stalls selling second-hand goods.

And of course, the market wouldn't be the market without the renowned antiques market on Saturdays! The market on this day is by far the busiest. As long as you don't mind fairly big crowds, you'll be fine - but if you do, be warned!

Whatever day you go on, you'll find a number of cafes, pubs and bars along Portobello Road and just off it, so there are plenty of places to take a rest and grab a bite to eat or a drink during your visit to the market.
