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.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
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
