"A gorgeous glass and iron shopping arcade with two octagonal domes rising from glass pendentives, probably the best example of this type of cast-iron and glass-roofed arcade anywhere in the country", wrote Pevsner. Well tucked away too. In my three years at university here I was oblivious to its existence, not that I ever went looking for it. Built 1871 by Corbett, Raby & Sawyer, and restored in 1982. Grade II* listed.
