"In its site on Bishopsgate since 1804, Dirty Dick's was named after warehouse owner Richard Bentley who refused to wash or clean after the death of his fiancee. He became a legend in the area and his legacy lives on in the name."

Old Spitalfields Market is the perfect place to pick up a gift or dine in beautiful Victorian-designed surroundings.

About Aldgate

Aldgate was the eastern most gateway through London Wall leading from the City of London to Whitechapel and the east end of London. Aldgate gives its name to a ward of the City. This is bounded by White Kennet Street in the north and Crutched Friars in the south, taking in Leadenhall and Fenchurch Streets, which remain principal thoroughfares through the City of London, each splitting from the fifty-metre street named Aldgate that connects to Aldgate High Street. The area around the large traffic roundabout to the East of where the gate stood, is also often referred to as Aldgate (although strictly, this is Aldgate High Street, and extends a short distance into Whitechapel, it is also known occasionally by the epithet 'Gardiners' Corner', in honour of a long disappeared department store). The nearest London Underground station is Aldgate on the Circle and Metropolitan Lines.
