Portobello Market was lots of fun! We went 2 weeks ago on a Saturday morning. The best advice I can give is go as early as you can. We got there at 9 and things weren't busy yet but by 11 you could hardly walk...More

I'd always heard that this market was a must-see, but honestly, I don't know why. Maybe I just had a bad first experience, but I was really disappointed. I got there very early on a Saturday morning and followed the herd from Notting Hill Gate...More

This is a must do when in London. Prepare to spend the day as there are a lot of things to see. Be sure to go into the shops as they are occupied by several vendors each with unique things.

This is mass-teria at its best. Hundreds, no, thousands of people thronged together, walking down a relatively narrow street filled to the brim with sidewalk and street merchants selling everything from trash and trinkets to decent antiques, woolen goods, clothing, books, china, silver, maps and...More

We visited for the first time on Saturday and expectations were high due to its reputation for Antiques. Incredibly disappointed by the stalls and stores would only appeal to those who appreciate cheap silver and fur .

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it

The location is definitely Notting Hill. We were there recently in April. It is extremely busy on weekends. We also went thru the week, but not so many vendors thru the week. It was very enjoyable.
