Arcade in London


To me an arcade is a place where games are played so imagine my surprise when I peeked into this arcade to find an elegant shopping centre. London has many of these passageways that run between streets and that were probably precursors to our modern-day malls. I love the architecture, colour and atmosphere of this one - unfortunately didn't get its name!

Every time I saw one of these passageways it was a good surprise for me, all the ones I visited were very fancy, it's cool to visit London again through your blog. ;-)

I agree with Lucia - I was there many years ago, and it's nice to see it again this way!

Cool, it's almost like walking through a lovely tunnel.

I love these too and wish we had many more of them. I ventured through some elegant ones in Paris...that was fun!

You are in London? You forgot to take me with you! I loved our trip there. BritSpeak is kinda different sometimes!

We have an arcade here too but not quite as decorative as this.

I love these places too! I've shopped in a couple of them. By shopped, I mean checked the prices on a few things. I loved looking around but, most items were a little too pricey the last time I was there.
