Petticoat Lane Market

London's oldest & most famous street market 

 

Probably the most famous and oldest of all London's street markets.

Petticoat Lane was established over 400 years agop and still attracts visitors from all over the world. The Huguenots who came to London from France sold pettocats and lace here but the prudish Victorians changed the name of the Lane and market to avoid referring to woman's underclothes!

The market actually takes place in Wentworth Street on Monday - Friday, spreading on Sundays to become even bigger with 10 seperate trading streets including  Middlesex Street. You'll find bargains of every kind, including new clothes from well-knows chain stores as well as leather goods, watches and toys.

The market is open from Monday to Friday, and on Sundays from 9.00 to 14.0
