Portobello Road attracts visitors from all over the world for its extensive collection of antiques. It's probably the most famous antiques market in Britain, with over 100,000 people enjoying the hustle, bustle and busy energy of a packed-out market.

They sell everything from a few pounds to stuff worth several thousand. There are also plenty of street entertainers and little restaurants and cafes dotted around for when you want a bite to eat.

Portobello Road has a normal street market between Monday and Friday, but the famous Antiques Market is only open on Saturdays. Most of the stalls have set up by 8 or 9 AM and close between 4 and 5 PM. (We recommend getting there between 10 AM and 1 PM.)

The market begins where Chepstow Villas crosses Portobello Road, and ends at Elgin Crescent -- half-a-mile further down the road.
