Portobello Road

If you know anyone that has ever been to London, chances are they have visited Portobello Road. This antiques market is one of the most famous in the world and a buzzing hive of activity. Every weekend thousands upon thousands of tourists and locals descend into the trendy Notting Hill district to search for delectable antiques, exquisite vintage fashion and finest jewellery from over 1,000 dealers. Portobello Road market is open seven days a week. But it is at the weekend when the streets come alive with an estimated 100,000 visitors! A sea of people greets you as soon as you exit the tube station and you can find the mile long strip of stalls, arcades and shops easily by getting just carried along by them. When you are visiting with a group of friends, it is recommended to arrange a fixed meeting point in case someone gets lost. You won’t be the first person to be distracted by the multitude of exciting offerings and definitely not the last.
