Spread over a few streets, there are many stalls selling clothing, bedding, shoes, bags, belts, jewellery you name it you can probably find it. Lots of branded goods as well as food stalls. You need to experience the colours, sounds and smells of this place.

20 years ago this market was the place to go on a Sunday for leather goods (jackets, bags etc). This is no longer the case. Today the leather sellers have disappeared to be replaced by sellers of overruns, rejects, out of season stuff by Marks...More

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
