Commercial Street

Commercial Street, central to Spitalfields and in the very area where the Ripper murders were committed, is a major thoroughfare leading in north from Whitechapel Hight Street up through Spitalfields to Shoreditch where it joins Bethnal Green Road. Stemming off Commercial Street are two of the streets in which murders attributed to Jack the Ripper took place: Hanbury Street and Dorset Street.
