Historically and architecturally, this is a wonder - and easily still the lowest (least high) building in the area. But the shops are all high end and then some - look, don't buy.

Lovely little historical shopping arcade. Full of character. Enjoyed a stroll and a spot of window shopping.

This is a delight. The shops are rather expensive but walking through the arcade is a stroll in the past. The arcade is carefully policed and one of the few places in London where there is no chewing gum on the pavement! A must see.

A superb arcade of fine shops reflecting the glories of time gone by but with some modern newcomers to make this a place for all ages to enjoy.

Beautiful arcade filled with exclusive shops. Top tier retailers with lots of jewelry and perfume shops. We visited several shops and the service was tremendous. My wife purchased several cosmetic items and I bought an antique watch. This is an anachronism since there are few...More

Dating back to 1819, Burlington Arcade was one of the earliest shopping arcades and today is home to a concentration of small specialist retailers selling high-quality clothing, jewellery, perfumes, shoes, silverware and other luxury goods. It also has a shoe-shiner who seems to do a...More

This little arcade is certainly worth a visit at least for some window shopping but also for the patrolling beadles. The products on offer are all high-end and expensive but I enjoyed peeking through the shop windows. I however visited Church's, my favourite footwear store,...More

Read about the smallest police force in the world! The Beadles guard and patrol the arcade and are a wonderful sight. Just meander up and down and look at the vintage watches, beautiful cashmere and eye wateringly expensive macarons! Oh and did I mention the...More

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
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife 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
