Portobello Road Market

I’ve been to the famous Portobello Road Markets previously (on Saturdays) but never during the week. Going on a Tuesday may have been a mistake. There were no stalls, which I can appreciate although plenty of other markets have stalls every day. Without the stalls to block access to the shops I assumed that all the businesses along the street would be open. Unfortunately, that’s not the case either. On this particular day the street was quiet and uninteresting.

In contrast to Saturday it was totally dead. Realistically you should go when all the hustle and bustle is present (not to mention the extended shopping opportunities), granted you’ll have to deal with that same hustle and bustle.

Nonetheless, Portobello Road Market is still one of the most fun wanders through London that you’ll have, not to mention it’s near the Museum of Brands and Packaging – my next stop.
