Market is always bustling and and well worth visit even if
you do not intend to buy.
is a narrow, winding thoroughfare, in the middle of Notting
Hill. A market has been held here since 1837, and today
is really three or four markets rolled into one.
At the Notting
Hill end there are over 2,000 stalls selling antiques, jewellery,
paintings, coins, medals, silverware and collectables.
All the stallholders here are experts so don't expect too
many bargains. This area also has cafés, bars, restaurants
Further down the
hill are fruit and vegetable stalls. The section around
Westbourne Park Road and Talbot Road was made famous in the
film 'Notting Hill' , which starred Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts.
Under the Westway
is a large flea market offering second-hand clothes, jewellery,
records and books, and beyond this at Golborne Road the market
becomes rundown but it's still worth searching for bargains,
as well as the Portuguese cafés.
Saturday is the
best day to go, although some stalls are open all week.
