We came Sunday and couldn’t believe how small the market is now. It was also so quiet and empty. Came here often as a teenager and then it was heaving and so loud. Couldn’t believe how cheap the London tshirts magnets etc were. Disappointed as...More

Genuine London market with Stallholders that have banter and enjoy haggling. Might not be as plush as other markets but for me this is more real. I guarantee you won't leave empty handed.

We walked here and along the little market that sold secondhand and poor quality clothing. The place ain't that clean but we wanted to try it. I wouldn't go back but it was ok!

Not that much has changed since I first came here in the 60s. Stalls selling cheap clothes, knock-off designer stuff and that sort of thing. A few stalls selling cheap and cheerful London souvenir tat for the tourists. Unsurprisingly the ethnic mix of the stallholders...More

Unfortunately it was raining really heavy the day I went here, I had a couple of hours to spare while waiting for my bus, found a shop called Arezzo which had the most amazing shirts, brilliant price.

Came here one weekend expecting to find the world famous east end market. Something like an atmospheric little local market. All I found was a lot, and I mean a lot of stalls selling cheap tacky clothes. Sure there was the odd stall selling shoes,...More

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to

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

The biggest issue would be the crowd, other than that I would think it would be fine.
