Portobello Road Market42
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.
Walk down Portobello Road from Notting Hill Station and take in the brightly painted townhouses.
