A Walk In Portobello Market

I’ve just been so lucky to have the opportunity to visit London. If you ever visit the Great Britain, set aside some of your time to visit Portobello Market. People with the knack for vintage cameras, antique finds and other cool things, this is the place for you.

Portobello is quite famous because of the film, “Notting Hill” and yes you will find the bookshop there. The first photo is the place used in the film, but the actual bookshop is the one on the second photo.

The road of Portobello is full of antique sellers and great finds. I actually wanted to buy stuff but my problem was putting them in my bag and bringing it along to three more countries before I go back home to Manila. So I just resorted into taking photos. There were hard-to-find vinyl records, second-hand clothing, paintings from local artists, vintage teacups and pots, vintage cameras and silverware.

Portobello Market is not only known for antiques, you can also have a happy tummy trying out the food stalls in the area. I was quite giddy when I saw the fresh produce that they sell in Portobello. I wish we could have that in the Philippines too. The vegetables and fruits were top notch fresh. We bought strawberries before leaving and they were so good!

So “Notting Hill” fans, if ever you’re in London don’t forget to visit Portobello, or even if you’re not a fan and you just want a cool place to buy (cheap) souvenirs and other trinkets, you should definitely go to Portobello!
