London Court, Perth

#1 of 27 in Shopping in Perth
Gift & Specialty Shop · Hidden Gem · Shopping
A walk in Elizabethan-times shopping arcade, London Court, will make you feel like you stepped into a Harry Potter alleyway. The authentic Tudor mood at this at this open-roofed arcade comes from its ornate facade and wrought-iron gates. Built it 1937, its large blue-faced clock at Hay Street entrance still chimes every quarter-hour. Above the clock, four knights know as "Tournament of Armored Knights," circle in the window. The interior is full of statues looking down on shoppers below. The stylish retail stores will compete for your attention with gargoyles, crests, and weathercocks displayed on the walls. As your footsteps echo on the floor laid with terracotta tiles, you will understand why London Court was listed in the State Heritage Register.

  • I’ve been to London Court many times over many years. There are still little gems to be found, and the clock is always a fascination. It’s important that this place is preserved in my opinion.  more »
  • Cool street to walk through if you are new to the city. Almost all shops are tourist traps though. Love the print shop by one of the entrances!
  • This is definitely something different. It's a nice experience for shopping with a lot of foot traffic. There is a large variety of shops including several souvenir shops, the largest board game shop in Australia and a lot more. Not any real places to eat though. If you browse you can take over an hour to get through it but if you want to see the London appeal, it only takes maybe 10 minutes.
  • London Court has potential but as yet has not fulfilled it. No good cafes so if anyone wants to start one, you may be lucky especially if you do something different. Personally I'd be happy with a Coffee Club then I wouldn't have to go all the way to St.George's Terrace when I'm busy. Lots of hungry workers and tourists frequent London Court so it has possibilities.
  • This is a very interesting little Avenue. As you walk down there's a variety of shops not all the same style of shop either, which makes it very interesting to myself anyway possibly others. I was surprised at the good nature of the people when I walked into the shops, sometimes you walk in in there and their attitude is how you do and other times you walk in and there very pleased to talk to you. these stores were all very friendly. I must be coming a spendaholic, I walk in and walk out with something I didn't really need.😂😎 Yeah I recommend wondering and down an alley and check it out it's very intriguing.
  • Very appealing location, cool In summer months with some very Interesting stores for art, Jewellery, clothing, and high range gifts. Nice cafes and small diners.
