See one of Melbourne's architectural marvels up close on a stroll through the Manchester Unity Arcade. Built in 1932 during the great depression, this neo-gothic, art deco building stands tall on Swanston Street as one of the city's most striking landmarks. Have a quiet coffee with breakfast at the 1932 Café and feel a sense of history all around. Click your heels on the polished floors and revel in the grandeur of the ground-floor arcade, complete with black-marble tablets and friezes, decorative cornices, bespoke tile work, and ornate elevators. Take in more of the beautifully restored interiors of this 12 storey building on a walking tour.
