Burlington Arcade

This weekend i am off to Burlington Arcade, I have never been and I'm eager to have a little wander, Burlington was Britain's first shopping Arcade opening in 1819. Its the longest covered shopping street in England and possibly the most beautiful, this oasis of calm is one of London’s hidden treasures packed with luxurious accessories – renowned throughout the world for its individuality and craftsmanship. I'm rather excited to check out the Laudree patisserie, after reading Author Gisele Scanlon the goddess experience, and her view on the exceptional macaroons.

Ladurée is a luxury cakes and pastries brand from Paris, the inventor of the Double-Decker macaroon, of which fifteen thousand are sold everyday- The are considered the best macaroon shop in the word! So i will have to check this out for my self.

Back to the Burlington...(My sweet tooth gets the better of me)

The Burlington Arcade was built "for the sale of jewellery and fancy articles of fashionable demand, for the gratification of the public". With the softest cashmere to sparkling antiques, vintage watches, connoisseur writing materials, fine fragrance and top quality leather goods, you can see why Burlington has kept its elegance, with the patrol of the Beadles, The Burlington Arcade is one of London's most hidden treasures.
