Visiting Barbican Conservatory: Photo Gallery

I could happily spend a day in The Barbican Centre.

This performing arts centre is one the largest in Europe; you won’t be short of things to do here.

The Barbican’s art programme is one of the best in London. I love the Curve for example, which challenges artists like the United Visual Artists to create an exhibition that fills the space of a curve. And I thought their Pop Art Design exhibition in the main hall presented the perfect introduction to the era.

There’s also the theatre and cinema too. The theatre hall is a lot more comfortable than the old, cramped West End theatres. I enjoyed a modern adaptation of Macbeth with Christopher Eccleston.

Not long ago I discovered a new reason to love visiting the Barbican.

Hard to believe London’s second largest conservatory (after Kew Gardens), is in The City. That gives you an idea how large the Barbican actually is.

Visiting Barbican Conservatory is prefect for rainy days in London. See the latest opening times.

How did they get the plants and trees into the conservatory? Via a crane on the road.

Towards the back of the Barbican centre is a lovely place to sit outside too (when the sky isn’t grey).

It’s also worth walking around the estate too.
