Petticoat Lane (Sunday) Market

    Petticoat Lane (Sunday) Market

    Petticoat Lane Market continues to be one of Britain's oldest surviving markets and an international tourist attraction on a Sunday.  Operating since the 1750s, it's named after the petticoats and lace once sold there by the Huguenots who came to London from France, cementing the East End's association with the textiles industry.

    Located just a short walk from Brick Lane Market along the streets around Middlesex Street - apparently the Victorians deemed the road's original name a touch too saucy - it is renowned for clothing and leather goods.  Behind the stalls you can also find numerous African and Asian fabric shops selling fantastically bright and patterned cloth. Located in close proximity to the equally popular Old Spitalfields market.

    Opening hours: Sundays (9am to 2pm)
    Location: Middlesex Street, E1*
    Nearest underground stations:  Aldgate East, Aldgate, Liverpool Street

    * Petticoat Lane Market consists of Middlesex Street, Cobb Street, Leyden Street, New Goulston Street, Old Castle Street, Strype Street, Toynbee Street, Goulston Street and Wentworth Street.
