A hop and a skip from Piccadilly Circus you find Burlington Arcade. A place with rows of little shops with luxury goods demanding painful prices. Opened in 1819 it was Britain's first shopping arcade and has since then been in the forefront of retail trends. In the arcade you can find everything from collectible items to contempary design and if you like the sparkle of diamonds you have found the right place. For some reason I find it soothing and comforting to walk up and down. Burlington Arcade.
