Portobello is an area in Willenhall on the Wolverhampton side of the border, in the West Midlands, England. It is situated to the east of the city centre and to the north of Bilston, in the Bilston North ward of the city council. It was formerly part of Willenhall Urban District before Willenhall was split between Walsall and Wolverhampton.

Ever since the tall flats and shops were knocked down, Portobello now looks bare but may be eventually re-developed.

Portobello has some of the darkest, underground gangs in Wolverhampton. Thriving from the early 1950's
