Well, who doesnt know about Portobello market!
I wanted to come over here and check out the market and also the infamous book store which was featured in the movie ‘Nothing Hill’ featuring my favorite actress, Julia Robert and Hugh Grant.
We took tube (which was so easy to travel in London!). We were here on a weekday so the market was not that exciting as it would have been described to be on weekends. I liked it as it was not very crowded, I had ample time to walk around passing all the colour houses which was beautiful. It seems quite relaxed area and generally people are friendly. There are few small cafes, antique shops, vintage clothing, souvenirs, local produce, etc.
We managed to find the book store and took few shots of it. On the way back to the tube station, we stopped at the Hummingbird cake shop which I have also written a review about it. Anyway, if im back in London, i will definitely come back to Nothing Hill for a visit.
