Burlington Arcade

Opened in 1819 to great acclaim, Burlington Arcade stands as one of Britain’s earliest shopping arcades, commissioned by Lord George Cavendish, later Earl of Burlington. Originally comprising seventy-two small two-story shops, it catered to fashionable demands with a wide array of goods, from hats and hosiery to jewelry and cigars. Stretching 196 yards long, this elegant covered street ranks among Britain’s longest. Today, its shops continue to uphold an air of exclusivity, making it a must-visit destination in London.
