THE PERFECT DAY IN LONDON
Strolling through Burlington Arcade is like stepping back in history: it’s remained largely unchanged since a local aristocrat built it in 1819. The cubby hole-like boutiques host an assortment of the high end and the handmade, whether leather and cashmere accessories at Pickett or hardy Globe-Trotter suitcases. Chanel-owned milliner Maison Michel and handbag designer Lulu Guinness have also recently opened stores here. Note the top-hatted patrolmen along the arcade—they’re tasked with making sure no one runs, opens an umbrella, or whistles.
