Notting Hill scenes 2

I arrived at the market early in the afternoon, plenty of time to enjoy the place, at this hour, on a weekday, few people, mainly Londoners, buying fruits, vegetables, second hand goods, strolling, admiring old furniture, a true paradise for market lovers

I began to walk attracted by the reflection on the windows of the buildings of the opposite side, suddenly I felt I was looking reproachfully by this man, so serious and obviously disturbed by my camera
So, just a click and I cached him

Portobello Market
Portobello Market in West London is one of the most famous street markets in the world. It is a popular destination for Londoners and tourists alike
Portobello Road goes straight through the heart of Notting Hill, the trendy area of London made famous by the film Notting Hill

How to get to Portobello Market

If travelling by Taxi ask to get out on the corner of Westbourne Grove and Portobello Road, this should only be a short ride from the west end area and only about 10 minutes from the Hyde Park area.

By Tube, the best way of all ... go to Notting Hill Gate Station and follow the crowd - yes really, you can't go wrong! The market starts about a five minute walk from the tube station.

By Bus, many buses from Victoria, Oxford Street, Hyde Park Corner and Kensington High Street come close to Portobello, buses include: 7, 12, 23, 27, 28, 31, 52, 70 & 328, the driver should let you know the right stop to take.

By car ... convenient, until you have to park!
