Located on Middlesex Street and Wentworth Street in the heart of fashionable East London, Petticoat Lane Market is predominately a market which sells a diverse range of fashion and clothing items. The market is based in the centre of Spitalfields. This provides visitors with the chance to enjoy a wealth of shopping opportunities with plenty of retail therapy to be enjoyed. This includes a variety of individual stores, eclectic boutiques as well as bars and restaurants.
Some of these shops provide everything from cutting edge jeans to some of the finest chocolate. In addition to this, you will be right in the middle of the financial district where you will be able to witness the day to day activities of large banks and corporate institutions.
Sights you will have the ability to see in the local area include the impressive Gherkin building. You will also be near the trendy area of Shoreditch which is renowned for being one of the most desirable areas to live in the capital.
In fact properties around here are more New York basement than the Big Apple itself. Just across the river, you will be able to spot a host of major attractions featuring the Tower of London, the London Dungeons as well as the vibrant Southbank.
When it comes to Petticoat Lane Market, this is considered to be London's most famous market which takes place on a Sunday market. It specialises in mainly selling an array of clothes for men, women and children not to mention cutting edge designs and designer items.
This includes a dedicated leather wear maker. Other goods that visitors can benefit from feature general bric-a-brac, household goods from some of the incredible 1000 stores that are currently available. It is really a sight for sore eyes and is certainly worth a visit for a truly one off jumble sale experience. In fact you can mingle in with the local and do a bit of bartering if you are feeling game.
It extends onto several other streets with Sunday being the busiest day. Petticoat Lane does not actually exist thanks to the Victorians but you can take advantage of this inspiring East End market which was actually called this due to the lace and petticoats which were sold here when the Huguenots travelled over from France to the capital.
In arriving at Petticoat Lane Market visitors need to take either the Tube to Liverpool Street, Aldgate or Aldgate East. Liverpool Street lies in Zone 1 of the Underground system.
It is served by the Hammersmith and City, Metropolitan, Circle and Central lines. Aldgate also lies in Zone 1 and is served by the Circle and Metropolitan lines while Aldgate East lies in Zone 1. It is served by the Hammersmith and City as well as the District lines.
