This mural is no longer there which is such a shame as we travelled for quite a while. Portobello Market still fabulous though. Colour, music, people...food, all there!

Photos didn't really show how great this mural was. Easy to find just wander down Portobello Road and it's write in front of you. A must for any Joe Strummer fan

Joe Strummer used to hang out in Notting Hill Gate. There is a Rough Trade Record shop nearby which has a secret basement record shop with posters and so on. The pub catty-corner has great burgers.
