An active street market since the 1870s, Portobello Road became London's best-known antiques market during the 1950s.
The bustling open air market offers everything for sale from authentic stained-glass windows to muscial instruments to paperweights. It also attracts a variety of street performers and musicians who provide an artistic contrast to the commercial flavor of the market.

The shops and stalls of Portobello Road offer an extraordinary variety of goods ranging in price from a few pounds to several thousands. Visitors come from all over the world because they know that in Portobello Road they will find the most extensive selection of antiques in Britain.
Every Saturday from 7am until 5pm.
