Burlington Arcade, London

4.3
#43 of 419 in Shopping in London
Burlington Arcade is a truly timeless destination in the heart of Mayfair, an iconic runway uniting Piccadilly and Bond Street . It is a place where old and new worlds meet, united by a common thread of exceptional quality, authenticity, bespoke craftsmanship and creativity.

The longest and most beautiful covered shopping street in Britain, the Burlington Arcade has been heralded as an historic and architectural masterpiece and a true luxury landmark in London ever since it was first unveiled to great acclaim in 1819. As Britain’s first shopping arcade, it has led the way in retail trends and remains a pioneer to this day.

Today, every window reveals inspiring treasures – from timeless collectibles to more contemporary style and design. Diamonds flash in both antique and contemporary settings alongside the warmer glow of pearls and other rare gemstones, vintage watches mark the passage of time alongside a striking rainbow of the finest leather accessories, gleaming silver, writing materials, bespoke footwear and the melting softness of cashmere.

Quite simply, the Burlington Arcade is the epitome of luxury: from its discreet location set back from the packed thoroughfares of the capital, visitors can enjoy impeccable service and unparalleled specialist knowledge, uncovering rare examples of some of the world’s finest accessories. For those who know – the discerning aesthete – there is no finer place to shop.

  • This was a nice little arcade. Lots of nice shops and the building was actually quite pretty to see which i ended up paying more attention to then the shops.  more »
  • Attractive building and a good place to shop especially if it’s raining. Very close to the Ritz on the opposite side of the road.  more »

  • This is a small and exclusive shopping arcade in one of the most exclusive areas of London. Though not that big, there's maybe 30 shops selling mostly clothing, accessories such as jewellery and watch etc. None of the shops are cheap and well outside my budget. Some items highly unusual with item you'll not find on the high street, so if you've got the money, then go right ahead. The whole arcade contains only one cafe I think, so it's not really a great place to hang out either.
  • Clean, light and airy. This is a small shopping arcade with very high end shops from tie makers to watch makers and jewellery and a few others. It has a show shine person who seems to be happy most of the time and has a stock of shoe accessories ( laces etc ) There are several people in capes guarding the place and giving information and a few plane cloths people who think they are invisible but are clearly spottable 😂 It’s nice to have a walk down as you can avoid the gross pollution of the area for even a minuet then it’s worth it. Just don’t whistle while walking through here as archaic laws make it illegal!
