Well behaved dogs are welcome at the Bear

If you come and visit the Great Eastern Bear gallery you are welcome to bring your pooch – as long as he or she is well behaved.

Your pet can even say hello to Doodle, the gallery dog… Or – or course – the Great Bear!

Those in the kn0w may know that the beautiful Great Eastern Bear Gallery used to be an East End brothel! But not only does it now look clean and white, it smells of pomegranetes, white tea, lily and wisteria – courtesy of Sandy Bay scented candles.

These candles retail at £40 each – more on them here
