Royal Opera Arcade

John Nash and G. S. Repton

View of the entrance into the arcade

One of the earliest arcades, this was originally part of Nash's Royal Opera House on Haymarket, which burned in 1867. The arcade ran along the rear of the theater.

The vaulted arcade

Shops are located on one side only since the other side allowed for access to the Opera House.
The groin-vaulted bays have glass domes. Large bow windows with lunette windows above illuminate the shops.
