This project is inspired by the Portobello Road Market, one of the most famous street markets in the world, which is located in one of London’s most iconic neighborhoods: Notting Hill, with its beautiful pastel townhouses, quaint boutiques and vintage shops painted in hues of lavender, blush, mint green, arctic blue, buttermilk…
Every day, and especially at weekends, tens of thousands of tourists flock to visit this fantastic marketplace. Portobello Road is famous above all as an antiques market, but browsers can also find secondhand goods, essential household items, fruit and vegetables. And the market is considered an excellent place to buy street food, world cuisines and retro fashion items.
Famous for appearing in films such as Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Paddington Bear and, most famously, Notting Hill, starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts, visitors come to Portobello Road to see this colorful market as well as explore the streets in search of the famous blue door.
This project doesn’t focus on the Notting Hill movie in particular but, as is the case with the actual neighborhood, it does include façades that call to mind some of the best known locations from the movie. The idea is to create a Lego set that captures the feeling of visiting this charming and world-renowned part of London.
The set would have approx. 2100 pieces and include 7 minifigures. Some printed/sticker pieces are suggested.
Don't forget to have a look to this video for closer views of the market and building interiors:
