Owner description: Visit for the beautiful architecture, stay for the shops. Window shop through the atrium's five levels for high fashion brands, enjoy coffee at the cafes, and listen to the Royal Clock strike.

Had been told we should visit here and glad we did. The building is effectively an arcade of shops and cafes on three levels with the upper levels galleried, The architecture is stunning and the whole feel is quaint (though very crowded). Shops are high end so didn't hurt my pocket as out of my league!

The architecture, the stained glass, the ceilings - not to mention the actual shopping. A must see if you like old buildings.

A must see in all its 'olden' glory. Interesting shops and friendy staff in the stores I went too. The vista of the building is enough to go and see.
