Interesting Arcade in Melbourne

All the arcades in Melbourne but I found this one really good. Interesting shops and good coffee! Being in the centre of Melbourne it is easy to get to for anyone.

I love architecture and this lovely arcade abounds in it. Worth a visit just for that. At the end of it all I relax in the Hopetoun tea rooms.

Beautiful old style shopping arcade, it felt like I was in Europe. A beautiful part of the city with some great cafe's and boutiques. Worth walking through just to check out the floors and ceilings.

Magnificent heritage arcade. You walk in and are transported back in time or to London of old. Floor, walls,roof are spectacular. Quaint little shops. A must "to do" while walking around Melbourne

Oh what an amazing space in the city! The architecture is beautiful - look up, look down, look all around. Groovy little shops, hidden treasures and interesting people. Lovely!

Everyone mentions the Hopetoun Tea Rooms & Haigh's chocolate but don't miss the herb & spice shop opposite Hopetoun and the record store downstairs in Block Place (next to the arcade). The Charles Dickens Tavern downstairs in the opposite direction is worth a try as well.
