Yes it's obvious and packed with tourists every weekend, but you've got to love Portobello market with its eccentric stall holders and antique gems waiting to be discovered. Even if you're not in the market for vintage fur coats or a leather rugby ball, it makes for a lovely, colourful walk.
Golborne Road market
The market opening times are the same as Portobello Road. Golborne Road has its own quirky ambiance distinct to that of nearby Portobello, with an eclectic mix of international food stalls, restaurants from everyday cafes and kebabs to gastro-pub and upscale cuisine including the ultra-trendy new Pizza East, second-hand and vintage wares, architectural antiques, niche designer and vintage fashion boutiques, personal pampering, discount and convenience shops, and local services. It stretches past the iconic Trellick Tower, which itself overlooks the Grand Union Canal leading to Regents Park, Camden and beyond.
During the week the market offers mainly fruit, vegetables, takeaway food, and household goods. On Friday and Saturday, the market really comes alive with a busy second hand and bric-a-brac section.
Best breakfast - Golborne Deli
The place has a very friendly and cosy atmosphere and a very local feel. The tables are packed close together, and the walls are adorned with various pictures and trinkets. Friendly service enhances the homey atmosphere.
They serve the freshest homemade pastries and coffee, scrambled eggs, eggs Benedict and homemade bread. Classic oatmeal or gluten-free granola with yogurt is a good option for the health-conscious. They also offer vegetarian breakfasts, as well as a wide selection of organic, soy, and almond milk.
Brunch - Raoul's
Summer or winter, there are always hordes of people vying for the outside tables at Raoul's: order a fresh orange juice and the french toast with maple syrup and bacon.
Best burger - Honest Burgers Portobello
East London may get the majority of new trendy restaurant openings, but Honest Burgers has shown its love for W11 by opening its fourth London site on Portobello Road opposite the Portobello Star. Keep it classic and order the Honest Burger, a juicy patty made from Ginger Pig meat, accompanied by the cult rosemary salted chips. We recommend the homemade lemonade to keep your thirst down.
Best pizza - Pizza East Portobello
The pizzas at this converted Georgian pub are fantastic. We'd order the spicy sausage, mozzarella, broccoli at lunchtime on a weekend and you can explore the nearby antique shops and Portuguese cafes of Golborne Road.
Best cinema in London - Electric Cinema
After a fire last year, the Electric had a major makeover and now boasts super comfy beds as well as sofas and armchairs in its iconic cinema. Forget the multiplexes with their plastic frankfurters, the Electric is all about bottles of wine, tapas and old-fashioned pic'n'mix. If you're still peckish after the film, pop into the famous Electric Diner.
My home is a great base for exploring London from. You are just a 5-minute walk away from the nearest underground Westbourne Park so you can get around very easily with great links to all of central London.
