Follow a Barbican guide on a 90-minute walking tour as you explore the Barbican and discover the fascinating history behind the building of the Centre and the surrounding estate.

How much concrete was used? Why is it called ‘Barbican’? Why is the lake so green…?

From concrete styles to architectural motifs and insightful facts, our Architecture tour will leave you thinking and looking at the Barbican from a fresh perspective...

Cost: £12.50
