Was quite happy to see the Beehive Building as it houses my favourite chocolate shop Haigh's Chocolates, as it is in the main street it does not smell of chocolate like Haigh's at the The Strand Arcade in Sydney, I did get my rocky road

Haigh's is right on the corner where I went back (twice) to to pick up some delicious dark chocolate for my husband... I could have quite easily gone and bought one of everything and to top it off they offer a free taste which I happily accepted!!

As this Building is within skyscapers, eArmy Morning or Late afternoon 6 to 7 pm is the right time to have the sun on the Building. Do keep un mind this Timeline Renates to the Summer time arround end of January.

Lovely restored building with many little details. Can be hard to get some sort after photos of though due to close proximity to the road.

This building is wonderful, it is so unique. Have never seen anything like it. Haigh's Chocolates are in this building, which is certainly worth a visit.

The Beehive Corner is a well-known landmark and meeting place in Adelaide. It was restored to its former glory in the 1990s, and certainly provides a visual break from the nondescript modern buildings around it. That said, I wouldn't go out of my way to see it unless you are an aficionado of Gothic revival architecture. Frankly, the main reason... More

It houses both Haigh's Chocolates which I recommend for everyone to see as well as a comic book store. For a building its age it is very well preserved and the brick work is in very good condition (better than many in the CBD in my opinion). Tram stop is literally outside Beehive Corner so its easy to get to.

An Adelaide icon and this interesting and unusual landmark has at Rundle Mall level one of Adelaide's other icons, Haigh's Chocolates. Incorporate a look at this building with a shopping trip. Do not drive a great distance just to see this alone, but when you are there pause for a moment from the end of Hindley Street. Look up at... More
