Burlington Arcade

In 1818 Lord George Cavendish, later Earl of Burlington, commissioned his architect Samuel Ware to design a shopping gallery for the sale of jewelry and luxury items. Since the first day that Burlington Arcade opened its gates in 1819, it was a smash hit.

Now, two centuries later, Burlington Arcade has lost none of its grandeur and is still the most elegant shopping gallery. It offers a welcome, peaceful, change from the noisy London shopping district.

The entrances to the Burlington Arcade are guarded by the Beadle, dressed in a sort of porter’s suit with a top hat. For example, you are not allowed to sing, hum and run in the gallery. If you do this, the Beadles will eventually put you out.
