This area has been well restored from what was once a Bank, and the remnants of its former life are still there to see. It has been divided into a series of small artisan shops and coffee houses, which although very nice, do not offer a lot of choice and are a bit limited. Its worth wandering along the arcade to see the old architecture and the clock that hangs from the ceiling.

We passed through here while we were shopping and while the boutique shops in there were not my usual type of shop even the building itself is worth a look. It has been well restored with plaques about the old bank and is lovely to look at inside if you appreciate stately old buildings.

This is a beautifully restored building with old wood and features in keeping with the era the building was built. The shops in here are beautiful and high quality.

The Old Bank Arcade oozes with charm & character. It's an gorgeous old historical building housing exclusive boutique shops & cafes. It's a must do on your Wellington list.

Visited this on our walk Wellington tour. We arrived just before the hour... Perfect timing. A little bit of magic! You could walk past the arcade because it's quite central but it's worth the detour.
