What was Elizabethan London like?
A place of hustle and bustle. One of the main features of Elizabethan London was the town market day. Local farmers brought their produce to sell, craftworkers displayed manufactured goods, and eager housewives filled the town square to purchase the week’s necessities. Far more exciting than the local market, however, was the hustle and bustle of a great fair. On such special occasions, fairgrounds were filled with food, wares, and entertainment of every possible kind.
