Saturday Street: Cock Lane


The Saturday Street is our weekly series in which we unlock the stories behind the names of London's famous thoroughfares. It's compiled by London Walks guide Karen – listed by Travel + Leisure magazine as The World's Greatest Tour Guide. You can find Karen on Saturdays guiding her Old Westminster and British Museum walks. If you've got a London street query or suggestion, email Karen at the usual address



Cock Lane EC1
Location:
The City of London

Never ceases to cause a snigger or two on the Ghosts of the Old City walk, Cock Lane is famed as a street where practitioners of the oldest profession could ply their trade within the confines of the law. It has gone by this, or similar name since the 1200’s.
