"Back in 1780 shopping arcades became fashionable in Paris. It took another 40 years before they reached England, with the first to start in London in 1820 with the Burlington Arcade

"In 1974 the Corridor was bombed by the IRA. The damage was huge, forcing the Corridor to undergo the biggest renovation program in its 175 year history."
