Portobello Road is probably the most famous antiques market in Britain, and attracts visitors from all over the world for its unrivalled collection of goods. 100,000 people turn up every Saturday to enjoy the hustle, bustle and busy energy of a packed-out market.
You can find items from a few quid each to ones worth several thousand pounds.
The famous antiques market only operates on Saturdays, but you can enjoy a normal street market between Monday and Friday (food, clothes, etc). Most of the stalls are set up by 8 or 9 AM and close between 4 and 5 PM. We recommend getting there between 10 AM and 1 PM for the best experience.
It begins where Chepstow Villas crosses Portobello Road, and ends at Elgin Crescent -- half-a-mile further down the road. The road is full of very colourful shopfronts -- it reminds us a bit of Camden. In fact, you might want to try Camden Market as well, especially Stables Market.
