The Grinch would have a real job stealing all the Christmas from Hyde Park's massive tribute to festive fun. The Christmas markets is a real treat for anyone feeling the spirit of the season, as long as you're ready to hear all those songs as you potter.

A fetish shop on Great Eastern Street that combines a passion for fashion with something a little naughtier. Originally opened in Berlin, the home of hardcore, GEAR now has a permanent spot in Shoreditch, where visitors can find leathers alongside leggings, sportswear sidling up to sex toys, and caps beside cock rings. Brands range from Longlitz Leathers, Rubaddiction and Fetters USA (on the kinky side) to Adidas, Wesco and GEAR's own tees (on a high street tip).
