Petticoat Lane Market vs Old Spitalfields Market


London have numerous Sunday markets. But all this while we never go such crowded place especially on weekend. Our kids safety is always be our priority. :)

But since they are much older now so we guess we're ready to take them there. So we took train from Seven Kings station and it took us 20 minutes before stopped at Liverpool Street station. From LSS, we walked 5 minutes to Petticoat Lane. Just follow the signage and in shaa Allah you will find the market. :) 

It's true that you can get a lot cheaper London souvenirs and merchandise at this market than the ones at Bayswater..

BUT don't expect the market is to be good-looking though it's in the heart of this metropolitan city. Honestly, i felt a bit frustrated and not really safe to be here.  

Many goods are sold there be it authentic or not hence you have to look very carefully especially the leather goods. ;) But good news there are many brand new and branded shoes and clothes at a very cheap price! (of coz rejected from factory) Rambang juga mata ni, last-last beli fridge magnet and London shirts for kids only..1 pound each.! hihi

ni budak yg tak sabar2 nak pakai baju baru..:)

very very cheap London souvenirs 

Other than that please beware of mashbooh (doubtful) halal food shop and stall at the market..omputih yg jual! Huhu. Hubby also went into one halal shop at this lane but he didnt see any halal cetificate inside the shop..tengok-tengok kedai org Turkish, hm kebanyakan diorang ni memang tak boleh dipercayai..so kene check dulu..

the end of the market at Petticoat Lane..

Babah tengok map cari jalan ke Old Spitalfields market plak :)

leka check souvenir masing2..

ummi antang nampak bunga terus suro Iris posing :D Tq iris..u're so sporting :)

Then we made a move to go to Old Sptalfields market hoping there is a reliable halal food shop there..Luckily, the market was near to each other, near to Liverpool Street station so again we just walked there..

 i prefer this market better that the other because the place much cleaner and many things to be seen and to be as a background for our pics as well..hihihi :D

Finally, we were glad to see the food court but unfortunately still cannot find the reliable halal food shop there. Huhu dissapointed again..ada jumpa kedai Kota Satay, but no halal display..:( it's Indonesian and Thailand's..

There were so many international cuisine and patisserie stalls as well but we just skipped them. Not only there're a bit pricey but we can see they were sold by non-Muslims..so tade masa plak nak check tanya whether they're vegetarian or not..sebab ramai sgt orang.

so creative

vintage frames 

vintage car ;)

So we just roaming around the market. Oh yea, it's indoor market..there are many vintage goods are sold at this market..If you are the fan of vintage, this market is totally in for you..;)

nice shop uh, but we just skipped it..my hubby kan pemboikott tegar...no Mc D, no starbucks anymore..

Then we just went back to LSS and luckily we found KFC halal in front of the station..so we went inside and bought a set of family bucket. After doing a lot of walking, it's really good to have hot fried chickens and fries uh..nyum2! Hihi. Then we went home after Asar prayer in one of the baby changing room at the station. (Yup, no faithroom to be seen there. huhu..)

That's all. Wassalam
