My mind did an entire routine of acrobatics when I visited the Conservatory that sits on the 3rd floor of the Barbican. The convergence of Brutalist architecture and over 2,000 tropical plants makes for an extraordinary spectacle.
The Barbican, however, has superseded the architectural beauty that drew us within its complex with this striking indoor garden. The plants appease the harshness of the béton brut and sharp geometry with an enchanting flourish.
If ever you find yourself wondering what to do with your weekend, we would urge you to drag yourself to the Barbican to take this place in. Do keep in mind that despite being the second largest conservatory in London, the Barbican Conservatory does not leave its doors constantly open. Do check their website HERE before leaving home for their opening days and hours.
