The smallest shopping arcade in London

A real hidden gem, a small arcade with some local shops such as a small supermarket, a pharmacy and a hairdresser, part of the Dolphin Square residential complex.

This gallery is part of the Dolphin Square residential complex, built between 1935 and 1937 and with a very complicated past, with many political and judicial scandals that happened right here.

For example in 2015, when some images showed the MP Lord Sewel snorting cocaine with two prostitutes in one of these apartments.

The gallery was originally intended to provide facilities for the community and I believe it has recently been refurbished, maintaining the 1930’s style, simply wonderful!
 
There is also a Green Room, a meeting space where you will find a fantastic scale model of the entire residential complex.
 
Don’t miss the Dolphin Square Arcade next time you’re in London!
