Lots of stalls selling cheap clothes , a bit like an outdoor Primark although one stall was selling M&S trousers. If you are in the mood for a browse then you might find a bargain. I bought two T-shirts, one Large and one X-large which...More

Very limited choice of cuisine, mostly cheap halal places doing average dishes. The jamaican stand is pretty good. I recommend their curry goat and oxtail stew

Famous for its selling of petticoats in the distant past and close to where Jack the Ripper haunted in his life of crime, so packed with history but not outstanding compared to hundreds of other fascinating London alleys and lanes.

Large street market selling clothing and footwear of all kinds. Worth a visit just to soak up the atmosphere but depends on the type of clothes you buy to whether this place will suit you.

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
