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.

"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.

Fine but not world-class

AdvantagesSome interesting oddities on sale.

A little bit of magic

AdvantagesVaried culture and an exciting day out

Many designers are spotted throughout the market, and you ..." Read review

funky shopping

Advantagesvery unique, perfect for buying presents

Disadvantagesquality not always at best

"This is one of london latest trends - following fresh in the footsteps of camden, portabello offers a unique range of goods for the trendy, upcoming crowd. The main market has a very urban streetwear streak with the occassional glitch with a very eccentric twist. Cheap is the name of the game here and haggling is a viable option. This market supplies a very colourful and buzzing atmosphere and generally is best at weekends. The goods here are very ..." Read review
