Hours, location, phone, store list

Royal Arcade is a historic shopping arcade in the central business district of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It was opened in 1870 and is the oldest surviving arcade in Australia. It is also the longest standing arcade in the country, with a length of 120 metres. The arcade was designed by Charles Webb, who won a competition in 1868. The arcade features a high glass roof and rows of arched windows to the storerooms above each shop. The arcade’s most famous features were added in 1893: at the south end, the carved mythical figures of Gog and Magog flank the large ‘Gaunt’s clock’, which triggers the arms of the figures to strike bells each hour, while the north end features a figure of Father Time. The arcade originally ended at the south end, with an entrance to a Turkish Bath, but this was opened up to Little Collins Street in 1902, along with the creation of the large arched niche. In the same year, an extension was added to the west side through to Elizabeth Street. The shopfronts were all changed into bow fronted windows in 1890-1894, later many altered again, various central kiosks were added, and the black and white chequered floor laid in 1934. In the 1920s, the cast iron verandah was removed, but was recreated in the 1990s. In 2002-04, a major refurbishment and restoration included the recreation of the 1894 shopfronts, bringing a consistency to the shopfronts once more. The arcade hosts a range of popular boutiques, cafes and specialty stores. The arcade also offers a variety of dining options, such as Caffe E Torta (an Italian cafe), Chilli India (an Indian restaurant), Koko Black (a chocolate lounge), La Belle Miette (a macaron shop), and Sushi Hub (a sushi bar). The arcade is open from Monday to Thursday 7:000 am to 7:00 pm, on Friday from 7:00 am to 8:30 pm, on Saturday from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Sunday from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. The arcade is easily accessible by public transport, as it is located near several tram stops on Bourke Street and Elizabeth Street. It is also within walking distance from Flinders Street Station and Melbourne Central Station.
