This vast dungeon of a fancy dress store offers a stellar personal service. Staff help you navigate some 35,000 costumes, from a sleek ant to a fuzzy Orvill duck, and then assist in piecing together a unique outfit for sale or hire. It's a great stop for period costumes, character fancy dress (they have everyone from Slash to the Spice Girls) and seasonal events such as halloween. Prices start from around £15 for accessories (cloaks, top hats and the like) and full costumes start at £35.
