The Royal Arcade, Mayfair, London

 

As we enjoy the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in Sydney it would be remiss of me not to pay some sort of tribute to the monarchy. So here’s a shot of The Royal Arcade. Located in the heart of the exclusive and well-heeled district of Mayfair the arcade connects Old Bond Street to Albermarle Street, and its construction way back in 1879 makes it the city’s oldest purpose built shopping arcade. Victorian architectural features are abound, including a saddled glass roof, decorated stucco arches and Ionic columns.

Finding charming, historical gems like this is what makes London so worth exploring on foot.
