Welcome to Portobello
 (голосов: 0)
Welcome to PortobelloWelcome to Portobello - one of London's hidden jewels. When you walk down Portobello Road, you're immediately aware that you're leaving behind the grand houses and squares of Notting Hill and Paddington, and entering a vibrant area of shops, market stalls, pubs and restaurants all bursting with character and life.

Wandering down the road it's easy to wonder if it's changed that much since the 19 th century when the locals found they could make a living by opening shops and market stalls to provide trade and labour to the grand households nearby. While the number of visitors from all over the world who join us to share in the fun of the place has added a welcome cosmopolitan flavour, the one thing that hasn't changed is the unique and indefinable spirit among the stallholders, traders, cafe owners and residents that makes this place what it is.

It's that spirit that drives this neighbourhood, making it essential that we preserve it for generations to come. Those of us involved in looking after the future of Portobello Road— it's buildings, culture, market stalls and shops are increasingly working together to breathe new life into the area whilst retaining the history and atmosphere of the market. We're fiercely committed to making Portobello Road better than ever, so you'll want to come back again and again.

Director, The Portobello Group Ltd
