Experience London's one of the coolest architectural pieces! Experience the Brutal! Always free, nice exhibitions, installations, talks or events on the ground floor. You can also hire venues at Barbican. There are a cinema, art galleries, shops, and bars. Both art-house and blockbuster movies can be seen. Free study areas. Free, fast wifi connection. Nice restaurant. Great courtyard inside the complex. A coffee shop at the foyer/lounge. There are always cool, original designed objects & art and architecture books sold at the gift shop. Calm atmosphere.GOOGLE REVIEW

Brutal Poetry. Voted London’s ugliest building in 2003, I’m pretty confident if it could, the Barbican would shrug (with some broad shoulders) and laugh nonchalantly at being considered not pretty! Why care about prettiness when one is beautiful already, in an out-of-the-ordinary, nearly unearthly way? Why care about cosmetics when one stands solid with character and filled with the spirit of so many outstanding performances and exhibitions? One of my favorite places in London, it’s where all my wandering in the city seems to gravitate towards — and though I’m an infrequent visitor to the town, I’ve been more times to The Barbican than to the UK. Guess some souls can never get enough of Brutal Poetry. Anyone else?GOOGLE REVIEW

Visited the Conservatory at the Barbican today. A whole greenhouse full of exotic vegetation in the middle of London. Definitely worth a visit on a Sunday afternoon.GOOGLE REVIEW

I loved this place, many different spaces for different purposes. Only sometimes when busy some areas are left dirty. Did you know sometimes there are stage plays available at affordable prices. The staff were efficient.GOOGLE REVIEW

It's a wonderful concept but it lacks a bit. The conservatory is only open on select Sundays and Public Holidays, which makes it so busy with people and the plants aren't exotic or too interesting to warrant battling the crowds. If you go perhaps when it first opens in the day, it may be a different vibeGOOGLE REVIEW
