Best shop in the city is the women’s vintage clothing shop, which is in the arcade. Beautiful part of Norwich. Clean, tidy and stunning...... Norwich is a fine city and the arcade reflects its beauty,

Walked through this Arcade as a tourist in Norwich and thought it was a lovely Arcade. It was spotlessly clean and full of character. We didn't go into any of the shops as we were on a time limit so cannot comment on the actual...More

Walked through this arcade and was disappointed to find only expensive boutique shops. The Colman Mustard shop appeared closed permanently - presumably because Colman's no longer make mustard in Norwich!

Nicely kept but with no Colmans museum. Some interesting small shops and a few voids as is the way nowadays.

At this time of year (approaching Christmas as I write) the Royal Arcade is especially pretty at twilight. It is easy to take yourself back in time and imagine Victorian families gazing into the beautifully dressed windows of the shops and boutiques lining the arcade....More

It was nice to see the traditional shopping arcade architecture instead of the more modern shopping malls springing up these days. Well lit and a good range of shops and boutiques. Conveniently located between the Castle and the Market, worth popping in during your afternoon...More
