Royal Shopping in Sydney - Queen Victoria Building

And we're back! Sydney was wonderful and adventurous but what's most amazing are the Victorian buildings and structures of royal style. Shopping malls like the Queen Victoria Building or QVB would bring you back to castles, palaces, and queens.

In 1898, skilled craftsmen completed the building - it housed coffee shops, tailors, and hairdressers. Now the Queen Victoria Building is home to high end brands such as Coach, Ralph Lauren, Salvatore Ferragamo and more.

While shopping, you can bask on the glorious sights of stained glass windows, painted ceilings, majestic and intricate clocks that were given to the Queen, an antique elevator (lift) as well as staircases.

Since prices are also royal, I reckon it's best to enjoy the building by having a coffee in one of the cafe kiosks, under the sculpted ceiling. Although if you have planned a big purchase like a nice coach bag, Sydney has more stocks and choices to offer. After all, Sydney is one of the most stylish cities in the world.
