The Block Arcade

The Block Arcade is a gorgeous, historical shopping arcade in Melbourne's CBD.

The design of the arcade is beautiful. As you can see in the picture below, it has very unique tiling throughout and I honestly would have been happy to spend my whole time there just gazing at it.

But the stores in the arcade are equally as unique. There are no chain stores, they are all independently owned or small businesses and that gives the arcade a certain sense of freshness and diversity from most other shopping centres.

It houses everything from sweet stores, clothing stores and trendy cafes.

The Block was one of the highlights of Melbourne as it captures the history of the city.
