Area Guide Portobello Road
Although Portobello Road was one of the last areas of London to be developed, it is now a bustling and commercial area of the city and home to many businesses, shops and restaurants.
Portobello Road is situated within the upmarket Notting Hill region, close to Kensington and Chelsea, and was a rural location until the 19th century, when it was developed from a large area of green space into a popular residential and retail location.
Today the area is well-known for shopping and has a wide variety of trendy independent shops as well as being home to the world-renowned Portobello Market on Saturdays which is predominantly known for vintage clothing and antiques.

Portobello Road is a great place for any business to enjoy networking with other businesses, even if they are not in the retail trade. The various shops in the area, as well as the famous Portobello Market, mean that the area is always busy and there is a thriving passing trade all year round.
