The Strand Arcade


Rightly or wrongly, I think of The Strand Arcade as the more old-school cousin to QVB. It was constructed in the 1890s during the Victorian Era, and named after that famous London shopping street. The wife and I went a bit crazy shopping for nuts and chocolates at the very excellent The Nut Shop. The ladies there graciously let us sample scores of cashews and macadamias, while I generally behaved like a famished squirrel let loose at a nut buffet.
