My apartment in London is pretty near Portobello Road and its famous market. It is the world’s largest antique market, though it’s actually a bunch of different markets with different kinds of goods throughout the week: antiques, fruit & veg, new goods, fashions, and second-hand goods. You can catch all of the markets on Saturdays, though something is going on every day of the week. It’s fun to walk around and look at everything, though it is crazy crowded, especially on weekends. Portobello Road is also a great spot for restaurants after the market closes.
