Portobello Market

Portobello Road Market is one of the most famous markets in the world and is best-known for its second-hand and antique sections.

The market During the week the market has a mix of fruit and vegetable stalls, new goods and hot food stalls.

There are also a whole range of arcades, galleries, shops and cafes open to cater for the flocks of visitors. Nearest underground is Notting Hill Gate (Central, Circle and District lines)

Shoreditch and Hoxton

Shoreditch is a mecca for trendy young Londoners. Filled with bars, clubs and modern art galleries, it is still a cool and contemporary place some ten years or more since it first changed from a down and out East End backwater into one of the most fashionable (and expensive) places to live and hang out in London.

Brick Lane

Brick Lane in London’s East End has been a slum ghetto many years. In the 19th century, Jack the Ripper roamed the area’s squalid Victorian streets. Within the last 50 years Brick Lane became home to Bangladeshi immigrants settling in London – filling the area with delicious curry houses. A number of leading international artists, including Tracey Emin and Gibert and Gearge have made the connected areas of Shoreditch and Hoxton their home and it is now filled with fashionable cafes, art galleries and nightclubs. This colourful area also holds two yearly festivals - Baishakhi Mela on Sunday 15th May 2005 where the streets are pedestrianised, curry houses and stalls spill into the street while processions file opast and musicians play everything from traditional Bangladeshi folk and Bollywood to Bengali rock and bhangra. The second festival is The Brick Lane Festival in September, featuring carnival processions and a showcase of Indian food.
