Welcome to Piccadilly Arcade.

Proof that bricks & mortar

retail is here to stay.


As customers become pickier, the art of customer-care becomes part of the sell.


A smile, a handshake, a knowledgeable nod. Isn't that what it's all about?


Chance encounters, lasting impressions, and overall brand-building.

The arcade houses a wide variety of some of the best independent retailers the city has to offer – a must for local residents and visitors from further afield.

With over 100 years of history, the former luxury cinema first opened its doors in 1910. The cinema was then transformed into Piccadilly Arcade in 1925.

05. Design

03. Location
