This is a very short arcade that runs off Bond Street and offers a cut though if you are visiting The Faraday Museum for instance. It is well kept with nice architecture and there is a vintage watch shop and impressive chocolate shop.

The Royal Arcade is a lovely piece of architecture, and has some interesting shops, also a Camper and a perfumery. It is well worth a visit, nice diversion from New Bond street.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed

London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
