portobello market it

One of the places Austin's parents wanted to do before they leave this week was Portobello Market in Nottinghill.


So Saturday saw us take a family outing to the famous and ridiculously busy markets - in amongst brilliant sunshine and heavy downpours.


We ooh'd and ahh'd over all the antiques and vintage wares on offer, and partook of many coffees and the odd chocolate-covered cream bun.


Amidst the ooh'ing and ahh'ing and cream bun eating there was dancing...


and Hongi's...


and cups of tea while children slept...


But most importantly, there was quality time spent with Granny and Pop before they head back to the other side of the world.


We also visited the cute little bookstore made famous from the movie 'Nottinghill' but I didn't get any decent photos to share, sorry.
But yes it is there and yes it is very cute (if not a bit touristy).
Hugh Grant wasn't working there though. Shame.

A fun and memorable day out together.
We always love any opportunity to Portobello Market it.

  5. I want to visit Nottinghill and I love bookstores... independently owned are better. I know how much grandparents love their grandkids, how sad they're leaving soon. I love that photo of Austin holding Beni with that crazy black (hat?) piece. Too cute! xx
