What makes the market truly unique is the juxtaposition of the incredibly diverse trinkets next to the boldly coloured townhouses that Notting Hill is so famous for. This, to me, is what makes the market to quintessentially London. http://toeuropeandbeyond.com/portobello-road-market-photos/ #travel #London
Christmas in London is a time of great festivity, with lights making the city bright and markets filling squares and parks. It's a great time to visit the British capital and get into the seasonal spirit!
Portobello Road Market in Notting Hill is one of the most famous street markets in the world. The Saturday antiques market is the most popular but there is a street market six days a week. Portobello Road is lined with well-established shops and is not the average 'High Street' as most are independent stores. There has been a market on this street since around 1870. As well as the antique stalls there are a whole host of arcades, galleries, shops and cafes.
