The Christmas ShopThis is an Aladdin's cave bursting at the seams with enough twinkling bits 'n' bobs and Christmas clutter that Father Christmas' North Pole home could have a complete makeover (without dipping into his present fund). The Christmas Shop is home to some truly spectacular tat but the sheer amount of stuff on display means there are some gems here too - you'll be able to pick out glass baubles to match your colour scheme, adorn your tree with pretty lanterns and find some great table decorations. There are also nativity scenes, lighted houses, stocking and sacks, treetop angels and Christmas crackers among the crowded displays. It's the only official Christmas shop in London and, like stepping through the wardrobe into Narnia, a winter wonderland awaits 12 months a year. Whether the thought of Christmas fills you with bah humbugs or a tinkling of jingle bells, the glitz and sparkle are worth the trip over to London Bridge.
