The Corridor, Bath

4.0
#24 of 38 in Shopping in Bath
The Corridor is one of the world's earliest retail arcades, designed by architect Henry Goodridge and built in 1825, in Bath, Somerset, England.

The fashion for arranging shops in arcades arose in Paris in the late 18th Century. The Corridor followed the trend set by London's Burlington Arcade.

The Grade II listed arcade has a glass roof. The High Street end has a Doric colonnade. Each end has marble columns.
A musicians gallery, with a wrought iron balustrade and gilt lions heads and garlands, is in the centre of the arcade.
Number 7 was the photographic studio of William Friese-Greene.

  • Interesting shops but I mainly use the shoe repair shop who do an excellent job
