Burlington Arcade :: Shared Description

The Burlington Arcade is a covered shopping arcade in London, that runs behind Bond Street from Piccadilly through to Burlington Gardens. It is one of the precursors of the mid-19th-century European shopping gallery and the modern shopping centre. The Burlington Arcade was built "for the sale of jewellery and fancy articles of fashionable demand, for the gratification of the public". It was one of the London's earliest arcades, built at a time when the arcade was a new form of retail shopping designed to serve the growing middle classes. The Arcade opened in 1819.
