Making our way from Park Lane to Covent Garden we happened upon the arcade and were blown away. To think this is 200 years old the style and quality still shines through. The shops themselves are interesting and far from being a cut through this...More

Wandering along into London found Burlington Arcade, well worth a wander through to browse at some eclectic shops, especially the vintage rolex one, doorman at each end and some ceiling paper blue birds make this a delightful treat.

Most say that building this arcade was a business decision; however, romantics say Lord George Cavendish built this place so that his wife could shop in a safe place. If you look carefully, there are still private security guards here, a leftover of a different...More

Mayfair
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
