This arcade is worth a stroll though on a wet day or if the the area. It makes a pleasant change from the normal high street chains but it does feel as if everything will be overpriced because of its hipster feel. We browsed for...More

Thought this would be a quirky old style shopping street and a good way to spend some time but it's not. We walked through about 11:30 and most of the stalls weren't open and those that were sell a bizarre collection of junk. Our entire...More

Turkish delight, amusing dresses, old , collectibles and junk thrown together. Barber shops, kitsch stores. One might find a trinket or two. The Turkish delight is delightful. Try the rose.

Like some other reviewers, we found the shops relatively average rather than anything terribly special. If you are nearby or you are looking for inexpensive items, it is worthwhile. It's not huge, we walked through and bought a few things in 30 minutes or less.

Lovely old building full of shops with a little bit of everything. I like it as a welcome change from the usual retail outlets. You can carry on a conversation with some interesting people even if you cannot find something to purchase. The food offerings...More
