Local London: Portobello Market

_DSC1845

For many years Portobello Market for me was the set of my most favourite movie Notting Hill. When I first moved to London life was so crazy that for so long I never managed to go and see this lovely spot. I don’t remember when was the first time when I went to Portobello Market but it was during the Notting Hill carnival in August. I loved the area! And when we moved to West London a few years ago and Notting Hill is now just a stone throw away Portobello Road is one of my favourite places for a relaxing walk and a coffee date during the weekend. I also enjoy the market and all the lovely things it has to offer.
From vintage clothes, cameras and crockery to beautiful handmade jewellery, scarves and other pretty accessories, there is lots to tease you to buy. Add to this delicious food, fresh fruit and veg and fresh juices, there is lots to do for a whole day. And if the weather is nice (rarely, but still!) there are tons of lovely cafes to enjoy coffee or tea under the sun. I also love taking pictures of the pretty colourful houses in the Notting Hill neighbourhood.
If you make your way to Portobello, don’t forget to visit the little and so charming book shop from the Notting Hill movie.

Below are some pictures which I took a while ago and never got the chance to post but after a lovely Saturday afternoon this weekend I thought it is time to write about Portobello Market.
