Petticoat Lane is the name given to the market which stretches between Middlesex Street and Wentworth Street. But don’t bother looking for the actual street itself, because it doesn’t exist – it was renamed Middlesex Street in 1830 due to the sinful evocation of ladies underwear.

It specialises in cheap clothes and shoes, but also sells fruit, veg and electronics. The end near Aldgate tube has shelves and shelves of leather jackets.

Several hundred stalls are laid out like an oriental bazaar, attracting mainly Pakistani, Indian, Arab and Bangladeshi traders.
