Since opening its doors way back in 1892, Block Arcade has remained one of Melbourne's best-loved and most ornate shopping precincts. Home to the iconic Hopetoun Tea Rooms, in operation since the arcade was first built, the arcade boasts a soaring glass canopy and mosaic floors, which were inspired by Milan's famed Galleria Vittorio Emanuele.

Saunter in off Collins Street and make your way through the dazzling interiors, checking out the bespoke tailors and jewellers, art dealers and spice merchants that inhabit this special piece of Melbourne. Recharge with High Tea at the Hopetoun Tea Rooms or pick up sweet nothings at the chocolate shop to keep you going. Walk on through to Block Place or Block Court and continue exploring the bustling cafes and bakeries, boutiques and specialty shops.
