London Christmas Shopping Guide 2015 No.7. Royal Arcade #xmasinlondon #londonxmas

Welcome to our London Christmas Shopping Guide 2015. 

Over the next few weeks we'll be pointing you in the direction of our favourite shops and shopping neighbourhoods near the meeting and ending points of our London Walks …

No.7. The Royal Arcade

If walkers want a touch of effortless elegance and charm, my recommendation would be a trip to The Royal Arcade in Mayfair.  Even those with limited budgets can go window shopping there.

It is small but beautifully and perfectly formed and features on the Oscar Wilde walk I take, so remember to adorn your shopping bags with a green carnation or two if you come along.

Best wishes
