London market dating from 1682

) As you walk north up Portobello Road, the stalls of chic antiques start to peter off.
The best part of the market—where all the most gorgeous, eye-catching gems are on display—is right at the start of Portobello Road (at Pembridge Road).
Don’t miss the arcades, the little shopping passageways filled with even more rare goodies.
(Also, the adorable pastel-colored houses in powder blues and darling pinks make for a perfect backdrop for your Instagram photos.) Without too much digging, you’ll be able to bring home unique souvenirs, like vintage postcards, or one-of-a-kind treasures for yourself, like a 1920s silver hand mirror.
Also, one of the best things about having your very own London Perfect apartment is you have an amazing kitchen all to yourself.
Posh collectibles are replaced with fun bric-a-bracs, funky second-hand clothes and punchy street art.
(There’s even a Banksy located near the corner of Portobello Road and Acklam Road.) The energy and ambiance of Portobello Road on market days is memorizing and energizing. And it’s impossible not be taken with stall after stall of old-world treasures.
