Portobello Road Market is always bustling and and well worth visit even if you do not intend to buy. Portobello Road is a narrow, winding thoroughfare, in the middle of Notting Hill. A market has been held here since 1837, and today is really three or four markets rolled into one. At the Notting Hill end there are over 2,000 stalls selling antiques, jewellery, paintings, coins, medals, silverware and collectables. All the stallholders here are experts so don’t expect too many bargains. This area also has cafés, bars, restaurants and delicatessens. Further down the hill are fruit and vegetable stalls. The section around Westbourne Park Road and Talbot Road was made famous in the film ‘Notting Hill’ , which starred Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts. Under the Westway is a large flea market offering second-hand clothes, jewellery, records and books, and beyond this at Golborne Road the market becomes rundown but it’s still worth searching for bargains, as well as the Portuguese cafés. Saturday is the best day to go, although some stalls are open all week.
