Burlington Arcade, in Piccadilly, London

Walking away from Green Park on Piccadilly, I spotted a very strange shop which looked like it had a window full of gold leaf items. It was a chocolatier at the entrance of the Burlington Arcade. The Burlington Arcade was the first shopping gallery of Britain and opened in 1819. The arcade shops offer luxury and quality products like perfume, clothing and jewellery. It is a historical place worth visiting. If you have enough money to spend, you will have many opportunities here.

Komende van "Green Park" op Piccadilly, merkte ik een rare winkel op die in het uitstalraam allerlei artikelen te koop stelde op goudblad versieringen. Het was een chocolade winkel op de hoek van de Burlington Arcade. Deze Arcade was het eerste shopping centrum van Engeland en opende zijn deuren in 1819. De winkeltjes bieden allerlei luxe en kwaliteitsproducten aan zoals parfum, kledij en juwelen. Het is een historische plaats die een bezoekje waard is. Als je teveel geld hebt zal je er hier zeker van af geraken.
