[edit] About

Portobello Road is a street in the Notting Hill district of The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in West London, England. It runs almost the length of Notting Hill from south to north, roughly parallel with Ladbroke Grove. On Saturdays, it is home to the Portobello Road Market, one of London's notable street markets that is known for its second-hand clothes and antiques.

The Portobello Road Market is a main tourist draw. The main market day for antiques is Saturday. However, there are also fruit and vegetable stalls in the market, which trade throughout the week and are located further north than the antique stalls, near the Westway Flyover. The market began as a fresh-food market in the 19th century, while the antiques dealers arrived in the late 1940s and 1950s. Portobello Road is currently a great place to browse for all kinds of antiques, including furniture, jewelry, books, ceramics and metalware, music instruments, sports memorabilia, textiles, stamps, toys and many more.
