  • Visitor Information

Barbican ConservatoryHome to over 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees, the Barbican's Conservatory is a hidden tropical oasis in the heart of the city. So it may look like a giant green house to the casual observer but finches, quails and exotic fish all live here. Opened in 1984, the glass structure is yet another part of the Barbican's famously strange and controversial architectural make-up. Being enclosed by the glass roof means you can visit in any weather (though it is only open on Sundays, 12:00 - 16:00, and Bank Holidays). A popular choice for private functions, conferences and film premieres, the Conservatory can comfortably hold up to 150 guests for drinks. It was the venue for the premiere of the film starring the world's most famous teenage wizard, Harry Potter. Even the Queen herself has paid a visit when she attended the celebrations marking the Barbican's 25th anniversary (March 2007).
