Burlington Arcade | Hub of the James Bond Brands

Burlington arcade entrance

Address: Burlington Arcade 51 Piccadilly, London W1J 0QJ

Set Up:

The Burlington Arcade is a shopping institution in London. It’s one long covered shopping arcade that stretches 196 yards. There are no public toilets but if you ask one of the beadles (a patrol officer easy to spot in traditional uniform, top hat and frock) nicely they should be able to accommodate you.

Whilst Bond himself has never been here in film, you will find many of the Bond brands housed under this arcade. N.Peal is at the top entrance, you have Crockett & Jones and Globetrotter that will have James Bond concessions on display. There is a pop-up Bollinger Bar but at the time of writing this (NOV ’23) it’s unclear whether they have the Bond paraphernalia on display. But do check upstairs.
