“One of my favourites”

published 22/06/2000

great variety of goods, nice vibe

gets very crowded

Portobello Market is one of my favourite markets in London. It takes place every Friday and Saturday, whereby the Friday market is a lot smaller.

I love markets, but I had never been to Portobello Market until my girlfriend got some train tickets for us to go up to London for my Christmas present. I had to find someplace to go and remembering the Clinton’s recent visit, I was prompted to satisfy my curiosity. I have to say I am not...

“Unique and Fresh”

published 16/08/2000

Lots of variety, good prices

Gets very crowded at times

A lot of buyers and stylist go here to pick up clothes and idea for the latest music vids or pages. You may also find the odd popstar or so browsing undercover. The indoor shopping arcade is small but very unique and host some of britains best and freshest small labels. I just wish there were...

Amazing antiques and atmosphere

Rain!

My partner and I visited Portobello Market a few weeks ago when we were visiting a relative in London. We googled how to get there and followed the directions (extremely easy, take the tube to Notting Hill Gate, and follow the crowd!). The walk down towards the market is through a street lined...
