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

Follow our 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.

Walking along the Barbican highwalks, you’ll learn more about the construction, design and influence of the estate, along with surprising and rarely seen sights and discoveries plus little known insights into this unique architectural endeavour.

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...

Post-tour refreshments
