Two London institutions in the same building, down a little side street in Covent Garden. Upstairs, in Slam City Skates, it's all about skatewear, with its legendary array of jeans, trainers and baseball caps. Although it does now seem to have been taken over by visiting tourists.
Downstairs, Rough Trade has been selling the finest music for what seems like centuries. Whether you're into funk, dub, electronica, techno or indie - if you can't find what you went in there for, you'll come away with something better. Plus, it has a small collection of music DVDs and oddball magazines.
