Recognised as one of London’s most iconic landmarks, Burlington Arcade provides a bespoke retail experience within its 200 year old building. The unique historical monument is home to a portfolio of luxury brands such as: Atkinsons 1799, Bell & Ross, Church’s, Crockett & Jones, Globe Trotter, Kwanpen, Ladurée, Lalique, Manolo Blahnik, N.Peal, Penhaligons, Roja Parfums, Strathberry and Vilebrequin.

Situated in the heart of Mayfair and referred to as the ‘Jewel in Mayfair,’ Burlington Arcade is a destination for Vintage Watches and Jewellery. The Vintage Watch Company has been trading for 25 years, and has the largest collection of pre-owned Rolex watches in the world. Azza Fahmy, Ciro, David Duggen, Hancock’s, Michael Rose Jewellers, Richard Ogden and Susannah Lovis are all independent jewellers with a combined presence of over a hundred years, one of a kind brands only found in Burlington Arcade.

A proud feature that brings the Arcade to life is the Beadles. Lord Cavendish’s regiment, the 10th Hussars, recruited the Beadles to safeguard the Arcade. Welcoming four million visitors a year, the Beadles continue to wear Regency inspired uniforms, and are the oldest and smallest police force in the country. There are rules imposed by the original Beadles still in place today, including the banning of singing and whistling. Sir Paul McCartney and Jayden from East London, are the only two currently exempt from the ban on whistling.

The boutiques at Burlington Arcade specialise in exclusive and rare items which sets it apart from the London retail landscape. It is also one of the few shopping destinations which is dog friendly.
