Portobello Market

The famous coloured shop-fronts at Portobello market, Portobello Road, London

Welcome to Portobello Market

London’s Portobello Road is probably the world’s best known market, and in 2015 is celebrating being 150 years old. Though famous for antiques (and rightly so), it’s also a haven for lovers of fashion, food, books and music. It’s the place for anyone who wants to find something really unique or just loves a great bargain.

On the busiest days, market stalls stretch a mile along Portobello Road and round the corner into Golborne Road. Hundreds of traders sell all sorts of everything, old and new, and there’s plenty of delicious food.

Surrounding Portobello market are lots of unique independent shops. Plus on Saturdays all the antiques arcades open, with literally hundreds of specialist dealers in a maze of kiosks to explore.

There’s far too much to show or list – and it’s constantly changing – but have a look in What you can buy or at our Photo Gallery and you’ll get a good idea what you might find here.

All the practical information you need like market opening times and how to get to Portobello Road is in our When and Where section.

If you like shopping without knowing exactly what you’ll find, you’ll love Portobello and Golborne market. It’s real London with loads of character, a melting pot of people from all over the world, treasure and bargains to discover.

We’re sure you’ll find something interesting. Hope to see you soon!
