Portobello TaLES:

Ladbroke Grove to Kensington palace



Whilst trying all of this amazing food, you will learn about the history of the area which is home to the largest antique market in the world, colorful art, fashion, architecture and iconic movie locations immortalized here on film.


You will have plenty of time to walk, talk, eat and simply let yourself get drawn in by this incredible area. We will finish just in front of Kensington palace and who knows, we might even be able to say hello to the royals.

£59pp (includes all the food and drink listed).


We keep these tour groups small so we can give you lots of love and attention (and food). We cap the groups at 12 people. 

We offer these as private tours too. Just get in touch for a quote.


We meet outside Ladbroke Grove tube station &

we finish right in front of Kensington Palace.

Best to wear comfy shoes and dress for the weather. We tour come rain or shine.

A taste of the tour

We change the tour pretty regularly, but here's our most recent tour. 


We will pop into The Distillery, a four-floor mecca for the discerning drinker. The first of its kind in the UK, they are not only a working distillery in the center of London, but also the new home for the internationally-renowned Portobello Road gin that we will get to taste ourselves.


Now as we leave Portobello road we soon find ourselves in the very up market Notting Hill and the vibe seems to have changed a little, a little fancier one might say.Meet Kamran Shedy, he is the proud owner of the Caviar Artisan - Boutique & Caviar Tasting Room. We will all try a spoon of caviar that Shedy will recommend us.


Dripping in flowers and crammed with Churchill memorabilia, The Churchill Arms is one of London’s most recognizable and famous watering holes. Built in 1750, the pub was frequented by Churchill’s grandparents. We will wet our whistle here with a local real ale.


To end off the tour we will slowly walk up to the very grand Kensington Palace where William, Kate, Harry and Meghan live and will finally open up the box of delights from earlier on. The doughnuts will be a delicious treat that I am sure you won’t be able to take your eyes and bellies off.


Our first stop will be at Liberté Chérie where we will meet the owner who is a very charming Frenchman called Charles. Here we will try some of his cold local cut meats and cheeses. We will also learn about his ethos towards zero waste whilst all of this is spoken in his incredible French accent too.


Slowly strolling down Portobello road there we will come across a small but vibrant street food market. Here we will try a delicious Venezuelan street food called an Arepa from Papelón. Traditionally made from white ground 'corn' and cooked on a round griddle called 'budare'.The Arepa is a staple in Venezuela.


Pick up a special treat from a doughnutry that creates very unique flavoured doughnuts. Every doughnut sold is made by hand that morning. The added fruit ingredients, such as raspberries and strawberries are locally sourced from the market on Portobello Road a few meters away. We will indulge ourselves with these at the last stop.


Further down the lane we go we will pop into Fabrique which is a bakery that originates from Stockholm Sweden. We will rip in half one of their Moorish Kernubble cinnamon buns and share it between ourselves. We will also learn about their traditional styles of baking.
