Why locals love it

It seems Londoners can't wait to get out on a Saturday morning and hit up their nearest market to indulge in good coffee, good food and a significant dose of good people. Portobello Road Market is no exception, but is particularly known for its range of antique stores which have been the core of the market since the 1950's.

Why you should visit it

The range of stores here will keep you entertained for hours hunting for your legitimate, unique London souvenir, but Portobello road offers numerous other gems, notably the historic Electric Cinema and Diner where you're bound to spot a celebrity.

Special tip

Walk down Portobello Road from Notting Hill Station and take in the brightly painted townhouses.

If you fancy vintage and old stuff this is your market. Plus the lovely colourful houses are really a thing to see. Always remember the best day to go is on Saturday. Try any of the food stalls

Portobello Road has remained a bargain hunter's destination, despite gentrification of the area, and remains part of the old Notting Hill. There are plenty of places to browse, eat and drink.
