This arcade is filled with luxury shops specialising in anything from Nepal Cahsmere, to wonderfully heady perfumes from Kuwait to jewellery shops. It's off Piccadilly near the Royal Academy.

An unusual arcade in Piccadilly that is of a past era. Great stores in an Victorian type covered market. Great steel work.

I have been coming here since i was in School and it's always the same, it's as if time stood still for this Quaint Arcade. Top of the range, upmarket shops and items; one of my favourite place to buy leather goods

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is

vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
