Little Britain is a street in the City of London running from St. Martin’s Le Grand in the east to West Smithfield in the west. It forms the northern boundary of St Bartholomew’s Hospital and is situated in the Aldersgate and Farringdon Within wards. Postman’s Park is also bounded by Little Britain.

In Charles Dickens’ novel Great Expectations, Little Britain is the location of Jaggers’ office:

Mr. Jaggers had duly sent me his address; it was, Little Britain, and he had written after it on his card, “just out of Smithfield, and close by the coach-office.”

Great Expectations, Chapter 20.
