In this week's issue we're getting all nostalgic and looking back at London's highs and lows in 2015. If you can't remember anything before December, our round-up of the year in pictures should help jog your memory, with commuting polar bears, hoverboarding thieves and giant slides on the South Bank. Plus, Andy Dawson of @getinthesea talks us through London's worst trends of the year, laying into beards, clip-on man buns and people who say 'methinks'.
Elsewhere, we pick out the best albums of the year and the must-see art shows in London this Christmas. And if you need a break from all that festive fare, we look back at your favourite dishes of 2015 – from lamb shoulder steamed buns at Bao to Shackfuyu's inimitable French toast.
