  • Beautifully maintained shopping arcade. The little touches in the architecture are lovely. There is a museum in Gay's Arcade in the middle with displays that show items and information about the history of Adelaide Arcade. Worth a visit upstairs to see some otherwise hidden elements in the architecture. There have been ghosts and paranormal experiences linked with the Arcade and it is nice that they embrace this rather than shy away from this part of its history. Great coffee shops available in the Arcade so you can sit and watch the world go by and an incredible range of businesses, some of which go back many decades.
  • I really like this arcade. It has all the charm of history. Much better than the modern malls located nearby.
