Streets of Notting Hill Gate on weekdays

There have been a few good words floating about this so called Portobello market in Notting Hill that caught my attention and a couple of weeks ago, even a friend of mine insisted that I should visit Portobello market. So, since everyone was talking about it, I decided to check out for myself what the hype was all about. But first, with the help of our trusty encyclopaedia, also known as Google (very useful application), I came across some snaps which looked similar to Camden towns.

Finally, I decided to go for a short visit and to be honest, it does look like Camden town, just a bit posh. They have thrift shops, food stalls on the streets and lots of items and objects sold just like in Camden but the whole atmosphere and the vibe, felt somewhat completely different. Since it was a weekday when I visited the place, there weren't much stalls and people as what they said during the weekends. I heard that in the weekends this place gets so crowded that you can hardly get much space to move freely. The whole market feels like some kind of a street festival.
Camden has its own audience; it is like a haven for music enthusiast of all rock genres (punk, indie, metal, gothic etc). Portobello is more of a place for vintage lovers, good food and I suppose a safer place to hang around. As you scan around the place, you will notice a sense of sophistication from the people there; their clothes added with personal touches and the way they converse. But I haven’t been to the place on weekends so cannot say much. I will perhaps make another post on a weekend visit there. As for now, enjoy the pictures!!!
