The Strand Arcade, Sydney

Find fantastic shopping with a touch of history at The Strand Arcade. Completed in 1891, the Victorian arcade was the fifth of its kind in Sydney and now stands as the last one remaining in its original form. Named for the London city street that joins the old center of London with Westminster, the building's rich red facade with columns and golden embellishments juxtaposes with the sparkling glass of the surrounding Central Business District. After admiring the architectural beauty outside, head inside to shop for top Australian designer labels such as Alannah Hill, Alex Perry, and Jayson Brunsdon.

  • Old fashioned shopping experience with very nice cafes and shops. Love the antique stair & lift access. Very nice coffee & cake cafe's down the centre of the Arcade.
  • Always one of the jewels in Sydey's crown, the Strand Arcade is beautiful morning, noon and night. It was lovely to discover an amazing Italian restaurant there. Your Pendolino. The food was heavenly, the service impeccable AND friendly. The price tag is on the high side, but this is a 'special occasion' kind of place. It's Real Italian At It's best.
  • Love, love, love... One of my favourite little corners in Sydney shopping experience. Don't forget to have a bite or a cuppa ☕
  • Many stores for shopping but mostly, it’s just the old-fashioned interior design of this place that makes it special. It is simply unique and beautiful- it’s my favorite place in CBD!
  • Restaurants and fashion up on the levels above, a cute & tucked away little walk through arcade with so highly respectable brands; this is wear you come to pickup a few good pieces of clothing, get your haircut and have a fabulous lunch at Pendolino.
