More about the Barbican Centre
Huge, multifaceted arts and entertainment centre. Described by the Queen as “one of the wonders of the modern world”, this multifaceted performance and arts venue forms one of the most important cultural sites in the capital. Open 363 days a year, it offers the most diverse program of any London venue. As well as being home to the London Symphony Orchestra, the giant Barbican Hall and the attractive local church of St Luke’s regularly attract a host of international classical, jazz, rock, and world music stars. Two theatres offer a year-round program of some of the finest in international performing arts, while three cinemas boast a varied programme that balances mainstream films with high-profile specialist seasons. The redeveloped Barbican Art Gallery, several smaller exhibition spaces, two cinemas, shops, cafés, restaurants, bars, live music in the foyer, and a host of talks, signings, and events for children are also on offer in this flourishing creative arena. The creation of the Barbican centre was one of the most ambitious projects of the post-war period, “the city’s gift to the nation”. It eventually opened in 1982 after a long period of stagnation for the area. Towering above the £150 million arts centre are three 400-ft residential tower-blocks (once the tallest in Europe) now some of the most desirable properties in the city. The building itself is a labyrinth and finding your route from the station or car park is an adventure in itself. Staircases twist around each other, directing lost patrons into mysteriously empty mezzanines, where odd snatches of music are the only guide back to the main lobby. One of the pleasures of such a huge venue is to arrive early for whatever you plan to see and go exploring. The joy of coming across exhibitions, live music, or talks from a major arts celebrity in some odd corner of the building is a unique feature of this remarkable concentration of artistic talent. Look out for the separate entrance leading into the Museum of London, the largest city museum in the world. Don’t be put off by the mass of concrete, this is one of the most impressive and dynamic cultural sites in London. Best for: London Symphony Orchestra, modern architecture, music, arts, theatre and film, aimless wandering in concrete labyrinth. Did you know? The Barbican's residential tower blocks house over 4000 people in over 2000 flats.

In the midst of the peak tourist season, LondonTown within 24 hours managed to find me three alternatives for a group business booking in central London, all at great rates. It would have taken me days to do this on my own, even if I’d known all the hotels to approach. Great time and money saving, thanks LondonTown!

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all your tremendously patient help over the last few months. We had a really successful conference, and all the reports I heard of the hotel and the whole experience were really positive. I do hope we weren’t too much trouble, especially with all the constant changes of numbers etc! Do just let me know if there’s still any follow-up to be done, but otherwise thanks again for your great work
