This arcade has the most amazing Victorian architecture. It was a real surprise. When crossing the city centre I used this as a shortcut just so I could enjoy it again and again.

Okay, I admit it - even as an OAP I still like to time my passing through the arcade to see the clock do it's thing. Been going since 1877 I'm told and the best free show in town.

Good to kill a few hours in, or to shelter from the snow :) lots of different things to look at, some rather unusual

This is a really beautiful arcade. The decoration is to be marveled at. We had a cup of tea in the HN arcade cafe, and it felt very special. Wonderful shops for those with some disposable income. Definitely the place to buy a beautiful gift, or to spoil yuorself.
