A lovely old arcade , it is such a contrast to the nearby Westfield Mall. This is beautiful classy and sedate with a range of wonderful boutiques, stores and coffee places - runs between Pitt and George, near King street

The Strand is a beautiful old arcade from a century ago and still is a functional, practical and interesting place to shop all these years later. A really small, clean and well organized boutique shop could do well here. Tourists enjoy this place and I think locals also.

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.
