In a city known for it’s love of theatre life, the Barbican Centre is located in the City of London commercial district of London and known as the biggest and one of the most important performing arts centres in the entire world. The Barbican is home to world famous classical music performances by the London Symphony Orchestra as well as the BBC Symphony Orchestra, both of which are considered top notch worldwide. In addition the Barbican has many art exhibitions, film screenings and live theatrical performances that make it one of the cores of London’s cultural and artistic heritage. In addition the Barbican Centre houses three restaurants and seven conference halls and features an outdoor lake.
- See where many of the elite musicians in London get their start at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in the Barbican Centre.
- Browse through the Barbican Library to find books about London’s musical history, and to see paintings and photographs of the centre’s construction.
- Visit the Museum of London, which documents the history of the city from prehistoric times all the way to the present day.
The Barbican Centre is found on the edge of one of the oldest parts of London and can be reached via the London Underground, which has several stops nearby. The Barbican Tube Station is the best bet, as it is just a short walk away from the centre. The Farrington Station and the Liverpool Street railway Station and the Moorgate railway Station, which are both connected to the Underground, are also nearby but requires more of a walk to get there. Since the Barbican estate is home to so many worthy attractions many people make a day of it and eat lunch at one of the three restaurants found inside the centre and learn about this historic site which was once no more than a bombed out area of London.
