Built in 1869, Royal Arcade is Melbourne's oldest covered shopping precinct and the longest standing arcade in the country. Connecting Bourke Street Mall, Elizabeth Street and Little Collins Street, this ornate, heritage-listed arcade hosts a range of popular boutiques, cafes and specialty stores.

Look up to fully appreciate the spectacular Italianate architectural features designed by renowned architect Charles Webb, who was also responsible for the iconic Windsor Hotel on Spring Street. Marvel at the glass and wrought iron ceiling and watch the famous statues of Gog and Magog strike the clock on the hour.

If you're looking for that unique gift you can't seem to find anywhere, take some to peruse the local jewellers, vintage outlets and fashion boutiques.  All shopped out? Rest the legs and enjoy a quiet coffee at either end of the arcade.
