Burlington Arcade

I always thought that Burlington Passage was pretty much an arcade...not covered but full of stores and a gents hairdresser. I suspect it is still there.

Help. Can anyone pinpoint where Stitcher's last two images are please? Can't work it out. Viv.

Hello Vivienne, I looked on google images and there was a days shop on a corner which could be the arcade or passage and there was a Hudsons Book shop to the left.

The second one is London the Piccadilly entrance to the Buon Arcade in 1827-28, better known perhaps as the Burlington Arcade

Thanks all. So if I've got this right, the part of the arcade that exited onto Temple Street must no longer exist. Although the other end is part if the Burlington Hotel. Is that right ? Viv.

Looking back down the section of the arcade in the photo toward Lower Temple Street with The Shakespeare Tavern in view.
