Flea Markets of London

London has long been the destination of choice for avid shoppers and with its reputation for thrifty fashions and vibrant street markets, so it’s no surprise that the capital offers bargain hunters some of the world’s best flea markets to rummage through.

Perhaps the most famous of London’s markets is West London’s Portobello market, a mass of stalls taking over the streets of Notting Hill every week from Friday to Monday (Saturday is the main day, with up to 2,000 stalls). Dating back some 300 years, the market sells just about everything – second hand books, antiques and fresh food, alongside clothing and accessories by up-and-coming designers. It’s not all about the goods on offer though – there’s an amazing array of food stalls and bijou cafes to take a break and soak up the lively atmosphere.
