Cheapest souvenirs found! Factory castoff of River Island, Dorothy Perkins, etc at prices comparable to Primark! Find them by simply wandering further into the streets away from Liverpool station, pass the cheap wares & such. We pass by on way to Old Spitalfields Market and...More

We walked here and along the little market that sold secondhand and poor quality clothing. The place ain't that clean but we wanted to try it. I wouldn't go back but it was ok!

Not that much has changed since I first came here in the 60s. Stalls selling cheap clothes, knock-off designer stuff and that sort of thing. A few stalls selling cheap and cheerful London souvenir tat for the tourists. Unsurprisingly the ethnic mix of the stallholders...More

Unfortunately it was raining really heavy the day I went here, I had a couple of hours to spare while waiting for my bus, found a shop called Arezzo which had the most amazing shirts, brilliant price.

Came here one weekend expecting to find the world famous east end market. Something like an atmospheric little local market. All I found was a lot, and I mean a lot of stalls selling cheap tacky clothes. Sure there was the odd stall selling shoes,...More

Petticoat Lane is the location of a small clothing market in London. Interesting if you're in the area but otherwise not really worth a special trip.

Petticoat Lane is a cute little community market in the central east. I normally venture for food, they spread a little more on Sundays. I don't care so much for the stalls, it's all quite cheap/ low-quality items that I doubt would appeal to most...More

went here for a weekend away. It's gone downhill massively. Most clothes stalls are the same dated stuff. Don't get me wrong, it's cheap, but that's it.

Visited last Sunday and was disappointed with the range and quality of goods on sale. The market still serves a purpose but now serves a much narrower customer base than when I last visited

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious
legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour
groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden
squares, these days you're more likely to catch a

The biggest issue would be the crowd, other than that I would think it would be fine.
