Petticoat Lane Market

Petticoat Lane is probably the oldest and most famous of all London's street markets, and derives its name from its long association with the clothing trade.

The original market was held in Petticoat Lane, which was renamed Middlesex Street by the prudish Victorians in 1846 to avoid reference to women's underwear.

Today there are more than a thousand stalls spread over Middlesex Street, Wentworth Street and the surrounding roads and lanes.

The market is very popular and is well known for its cut-price fashion clothing, leather goods, textiles, jewellery, china and electrical items.

Opening Hours
Monday to Friday from 10.30am until 2.30pm and Sunday from 9am until 2pm.
