Unbeknown to many, St James's Church is a little oasis of Piccadilly that holds a daily market. The market seems more like a shop without a roof though because of its location on a busy commercial street near Waterstone's, the largest bookstore in Europe. On Tuesdays, an antiques market is held, while on Wednesday right through to Saturdays, a crafts market takes place, selling everything from clothes and trinkets to food. It's a fun place to shop, especially during the Christmas week. Check website for other details.

Hobbs is modifying its image of dependable but boring shoes, suits and casual wear, with sleeker lines and original pieces.

Suits and floaty dresses are staples, but silky sequined numbers are creeping in. The shoes that first made the shop's reputation are still good value for the high quality; you can always find all-season boots, loafers and mid-to-high heels as well as seasonal choices.
