Portabello Road et al, W10

Crush. Squash. Stamp. Is pretty much what I experienced visiting Portabello Road on the first sunny Saturday of the year. Very tourist heavy, this famous market street certainly had a lot of antique shops and vintage clothes stalls, if you don't mind a bit of a squeeze.
I did find a couple of great stalls with original china, tiles and glassware on the busiest part of the street.
But my advice is to wander off the main drag, enjoy the architecture...

independent shops...

and random rogue street stalls in the residential streets.
Then head further north to the Golborne Road area..
where the smell of the foody street stalls will make anyone salivate, there is a lot more interiors fun to be had (giant lions and carousel horses anyone?) and plenty more room to enjoy it all!
