"It was by far one of the most interesting tours that I have ever been on."
The Barbican has long been a source of amazement and inspiration as well as controversy. Through this walking tour of the external high walks and inside the Barbican Centre itself, we will reveal the history of the site and the plans behind the original design. Discover the ideas, values and agendas that shaped the vision of this unique architectural endeavour.
Led by our Barbican Explorers, the tour lasts 90 minutes and will depart from the Advance Ticket Desk inside the Silk Street entrance and will end at the Lakeside. Why not visit the Art Gallery Shop where you will receive a discount with your tour ticket. You can also receive a discount on any Baribcan merchandise sold from the Advance Ticket Desk.
