Fashion: Get into gear

If you're a serious cyclist put off by the cost of the clobber, your prayers have been answered. H&M's collection with the ultra-hip Brick Lane Bike Shop yields some of the finest new weatherproofing technology, not to mention classy design, around – and it's all made with the high-street chain's Conscious concept in mind, meaning it's made from 100 per cent sustainable materials.

Food: Sozai Cookery School

Roll up, roll up for the UK's first ever Japanese cookery school, where you will be able to learn the fine art of sushi-making and more besides. 6 Middlesex Street, London E1, sozai.co.uk

Internet: Honest Trailer: Skyfall
