London’s Most Famous Markets 

Everyone loves a good market and London has some of the best. For example, there is edgy Camden known for it’s multi-cultural street food cuisine. In high end Notting hill there is Portobello Road, showcasing an array of antiques and vintage clothing stalls. One of the oldest markets in London is busy Borough market. It’s central location with close proximity to the Shard and Tower bridge make it an extremely popular area.

Portobello Road

Sitting in trendy Notting hill is Portobello Road, the largest antique market in London. Here you can pick up an Notting old-school film camera or tea cups from the 1800’s, there’s a wealth of beautiful goods on offer.

Whether it’s cosy cafes, vintage stalls or admiring the street art there is something quite charming about Notting hill.

My favourite thing about Notting hill is the picturesqe streets, take a wander away from the market and you’ll find the pretty colourful terraces.

If your a fan of street art I recommend urbanstreetarttourslondon.com
