"Discount clothing" Petticoat Lane, Spitalfields and Brick Lane Tip by ZanieOR

  Pettycoat Lane Market
by ZanieOR

We also visited Pettycoat Lane Market on a Sunday morning. It's a street market, and has mostly new things at discount prices, with the highest percentage clothing. It was colorful and fun, and if I was a Londoner on a budget I would definately shop here.
However, if you enjoy poking around looking for old or unique items, go to nearby Spitsfield Market instead.

What to buy: I bought a few souvenirs here, a few refrigerator magnets for my sisters and (don't laugh) a little Teddy bear dressed like Sherlock Holmes.

What to pay: Great prices! The same souvenirs I saw elsewhere for about twice the money.

Address: London E1
