AT Europe: London - Antique Shopping on Lillie Road

A friend with a taste for antiques just bought a house in Notting Hill and has a lot of furniture to buy. So he asked me to come along to one of his favorite antique shopping destinations, Lillie Road in southwest London.

It was a Saturday, and the tourists and crowds of the Portobello Road market were nowhere to be found, just a great few blocks of boutiques with plenty of options for him and a bit of inspirational window-shopping for me. It's a bit like Golborne Road but with a more single-minded antiques focus, and a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Here's a list of our favorite shops on the street:

Artefact, 273 Lillie Road London SW67LL

269 Antiques, 269 Lillie Road

A&L Antiques, 284 Lillie Road

Frank Evans, 271 Lillie Road

Stephen Sprake, 283 Lillie Road

Nimmo & Spooner, 277 Lillie Road
