Owner description: Window shopping is elevated to a graceful art when walking through the floors of the Strand Arcade, a Victorian shopping center established in 1891.

Similar era and architectural detail as then Queen Victoria Building, this arcade does not disappoint either.
They sure knew how to build back in the day, and the high end shopping is fitting of the spectacular building that is the Strand.

What a nice little piece of history and iconic culture. Great place for shops of all price ranges, lots of options for a coffee or snack and just a nice vibe.

Amazing building inside out. It is a historical building with so much detail to see. I am and architect and when I visited this building I just fell in love with the details and beauty. I would say this place is a must see.

This is the oldest arcade in Sydney and is a fine example of a late Victorian shopping arcade with lots of small shops that look almost unchanged from that era. So there is a barbers shop and other old fashioned shops as well that have had a modern makeover. I even saw 2 women shining men's shoes. Also you can get coffee etc there.

Staying at Barangaroo. Nice late morning stroll to St Martin Place, Pitt Street etc. The Strand Arcade is a must visit quaint local & tourist location. Beautiful building with atrium & lively small shop on a few levels. Recommend grabbing a coffee/tea, find a table & just soak in the atmosphere.
