An Exclusive Arcade



This arcade of exclusvise shops, the Picadilly Arcade leads between Jermyn Street and Picadilly. It lays claim on its website to being "one of the most beautiful and elegant in the world", I'll let you decide. If you are in the area (and most people do go to see Eros in Picadilly circus, 100 yards away, it is definately worth a visit. It is very reminiscent of some of the passages in Paris.

great catch but not sure I like the uniformity of the shops and signs.

Yes, it's like the Passage Brady here in Paris. But also that great old "shopping mall" in Milano's Galeria.

I did a little piece about a car and van that broke through the floor there: http://www.art-themagazine.com/pages/featur12.htm

That is a very chic arcade!

Exactly! For one second, I thought I was in France/Paris... The circular signs give a different feel if it were rectangular instead.

I've just discovered your blog and fell in love with it immediately. Thanks for bringing London closer to those who can't be there so often!

Ham, this is one of my favourite places to shop in London. I bought MBH's best braces at Budd Ltd. Shirtmakers. I haven't been back in several years but thanks for the lovely shot. We always enjoy looking at your pictures of "home".
