Three years in the construction, the new Grand Arcade shopping mall opened in Cambridge on 27 March 2008. There were crowds waiting to get in, both at this entrance, and in the larger entrance from inside Lion Yard.

This entrance is where the main entrance to the old Robert Sayle store was located. The brash sign over the entrance and the gates were designed by the Cardozo Kindersley Workshop.

Inside, the mall is fairly standard and consists of a large covered lobby over three floors with stores on either side on the lower two levels.
