Portobello Raod

Day 10 – Portobello Road Market, London, England

April 2015

Portobello road, dubbed as the world’s largest antiques market with over 1,000 dealers selling every kind of antique, collectible, new & secondhand good, fashion accessories, fruits, vegetables, talented buskers, etc. Portobello Market takes up most of Portobello Road which stretches for more than 3 km.

Nothing so interesting to us as you’ll find similar trading concept in other parts of the world differently called as weekend market, uptown, downtown, antique street and what not. Nonetheless since we are there, we did walk the full length of the market.

If you arrived by underground via Ladbroke Grove, to your left, Muslim travelers will find a couple of halal eateries. To reach Portobello road, cross the road and follow the A40 highway overhead you till you reach Portobello road. Here, Muslim travelers will find another halal restaurant called Makan. In our Malay language, makan mean ‘eat’. You can even get ‘Teh Tarik’ or tea with milk, Malaysian style here.

About the most interesting aspect of Portobello road for me as an avid photographer are these multi-colored buildings.
