In the 1960s, two Doctor Who movies were made, and in 2022, you can see them back on the big screen, at the Barbican Arts Centre.
About the Barbican CentreA cultural hub based in the concrete brutalist estate next to the Barbican tube station, it was built in the 1960s by the City of London to encourage people to live and socialise in the city.
Today is it one of the UK's leading art and theatre venues, with regular events every day, art exhibitions and films.
The art centre is free to visit and wander around, and some of the art exhibits are also free, but most of the theatre/film events have to be paid for.
IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
