Get Stuffed, London

A reaction against endemic minimalism has given one of London’s surviving taxidermists a new lease of life. If you’ve always wanted a tableau of squirrels doing the tango or maybe some advice about planning Rover’s retirement, then this is the place.

Put Cruella De Vil and macabre Victoriana to one side – Get Stuffed is about preserving more than just corpses. It’s even dragging highly skilled taxidermy into the 21st century. Pigeon book ends, anyone?

Get Stuffed is located at 105 Essex Road, Islington.

    Flowers for Mother’s Day and tool-kits for Christmas are so lame. Why not splash out on a shrunken head or the skeleton of a conjoined twin?
