Portobello Market

Quoted as London’s world-famous market road by visitportobello.com, you’ll find stalls selling antiques, arcades, bric-a-brac, fashion & clothing, fruit & veg, and food.

Portobello Road has one of the most famous street markets in the world and is home to one of the UK’s most diverse communities. It has a rich history dating back to the 19th century with millions of visitors visiting the market each year. The market stalls stretch for a mile all the way down Portobello Road and round the corner into Golborne Road. Whether you are just out for a stroll, people watch, looking for a bargain or out to grab a bite to eat, Portobello Road is a great place to spend your time exploring.

The west London site is most famous for having one of the world’s largest antique, bric-a-brac and vintage clothing markets. It’s a location that attracts tourists, locals and celebrities from all walks of life. Visitors can find every type of collectable from stamps, jewellery, furniture, vintage clothing, fresh produce, delicious street food, and freshly baked goods. The street is also home to some incredibly talented musicians busking on the streets. Originally known for its excellent choice of fresh produce, some families have been selling on Portobello Road for generations.

After a cold, rainy morning and a long walk along Portobello Road, we stopped for a strawberry & cream crepe and hot sweet chocolate in Portobello.

We had a chocolate and coffee break at Gail’s Artisan Bakery.
