Right in the centre of London is the city’s largest free to visit Conservatory, and it’s reopening after the pandemic lockdown.

The Barbican’s conservatory is the second-largest in London, and while the Kew glasshouses are larger, you have to pay to visit them – the one at the Barbican is free. Normally only open at weekends, and some mid-week days, as part of the reopening, it’s open all week long.

It’s a deceptively large space, with the plants running around concrete terraces and a number of heated rooms inside the glasshouse.

Tickets for the Conservatory are released one week in advance online, and a limited number of day tickets are released for online booking from 9:30am each day.

They recommend around 20 minutes for a visit.

You can book tickets here.

So all visitors can visit safely, they’ve removed seating and ask that people avoid activities like sketching, picnicking and photoshoots and follow the one-way system they’ve installed.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
