Visit the second biggest conservatory in London

Visit the second biggest conservatory in London

… and explore the hidden tropical oasis

at Barbican

We would be lying if we said the Barbican was a beautiful sight unless, of course, you’re a big fan of concrete grey buildings? However, there is one spot that is both beautiful and beloved by many: the verdant Barbican Conservatory, a glass-bound rainforest in the heart of the City and It’s also one of many wonderful free things to do in London. The Conservatory is open on selected days every week, from 12pm.
All visitors can enjoy the unique atmosphere of the Conservatory safely, they have removed seating and ask that you avoid activities like sketching, picnicking and photoshoots, and follow the one-way system.
This may all change after Thursday – so keep an eye out on their website…

Admission is free. Tickets for the Conservatory are released one week in advance online on Thursdays at 10 am. A limited number of day tickets are released for online booking from 9.30 am each day that the Conservatory is open.With the exception of guide dogs, dogs are not permitted inside the Conservatory.
