Take a walk through the showcase of old-world indulgence that lives in Melbourne’s Royal Arcade.

With a lofty glass ceiling that streams natural light onto the delicate Victoriana metalwork and timeless diamond, this small arcade is a charming representation of heritage style amongst the crisp, modern surrounds of central Melbourne.

Royal Arcade is meant for wandering and window shopping; for graceful movements, refined delights and generous gift buying. Extravagant boutique wares include Koko Black chocolate, Metal Couture jewels and Silk Store fashion.

Even visitors disinterested in shopping may appreciate the arcade’s famous feature, Gaunt's clock, with its guarding statues on either side that sound hourly chimes.

Practical Info:

Royal Arcade is multi-directional, running parallel to Little Collins Street, Bourke Street and Elizabeth Street, with entrances at all three sides. The arcade is open from 9am to 5.30pm every day except Sunday, when it closes at 5pm.
