A London shopping trip without the price tag, Portobello Road, is one of London’s iconic tourist tracks. It’s a labyrinth of antiques, fashion, bric-a-brac, cosmetics and collectibles. With street musicians and food vendors galore, it’s worth the trip for the atmosphere, even if you’re not looking to buy. If you do have the time and patience to trawl through the stalls, you’re sure to find a unique souvenir at a steal. Just be careful that the vintage clothing or one-of-a-kind antique you’re buying is not a cheap knock off!
