NileGuide Expert tip:
Take cash, ATMs have long lines and stalls are pretty much cash only.
Since 1837 Portobello Road has hosted a market of some sort or another. Made famous by the movie Notting Hill, the market will not disappoint despite attracting serious crowds. Known prodominently for antiques found at the south or Notting Hill Gate end of the market, there are several sections worth a peak although finding a bargain might be an option. After the antiques, jewelery and souevnirs the market thins as people bail out on Westborne Grove, but keep going and you'll find colourful fruit & veg stalls and mouth watering street food vendors. The third section is fashion, both new and second hand, which extends along the street under the motorway. Don't forget to go behind the stalls where you'll find nifty little shops. Oh and don't forget to take a camera!
