Cathedral Arcade is small but definitely worth a visit. On Swanston St, opposite St Paul’s Cathedral, this tiny arcade acts as the entrance to the Nicholas Building.

Featured on both the heritage list and the national trust, the L-shaped arcade is home to several boutique clothing retailers.

Built in 1926 – in the Greek revival palazzo style – the Nicholas Building is now a creative hub, home to boutiques, design studios, and small start-ups.
