    If you have kids you have to visit Hamleys. That's not just an encouragement, you may literally have no choice. As the world's biggest toy store it's a magnet for children.

    This is a small shop in the Camden Stables market, tucked away in a back corridor. The walls are painted red, the better to show off the sculptures.
