The East Ends most famous market



The East Ends most famous market

Petticoat Lane...the East Ends most famous market.

Location: Petticoat Lane, EC2M 4PT

Description: Visiting tourists looking for the East Ends most famous market could be forgiven for being confused. Because, of course, there is no such street as Petticoat Lane and nor has their been for around 170 years. Hogs Lane back in medieval times, Middlesex Street, the hub of the modern-day Lane, was a pleasant, tree-lined country road called Hogs Lane. However, Petticoat Lane remains essentially unchanged, with an exuberance and life that comes from several hundred years of the rag trade plying its business on East End streets. To tourists it may turn out to be Middlesex Street, but to East Enders it will always just be The Lane.
