The spectacular Conservatory is a joy to discover, a hidden tropical oasis in the heart of the city.
Protected by its glass roof the Conservatory is suitable for all weather conditions and can accommodate up to 100 delegates for a standing fork buffet or 150 guests for a drinks reception. Coloured lighting has been incorporated into the planting, creating a stunning environment for parties held after dusk.
This Conservatory can accommodate corporate lunches, wedding receptions, product launches and seasonal parties. It’s a versatile and unique space within the City of London.
‘The Barbican Conservatory is a gem in the middle of the City. We will definitely consider the venue again for other events. ‘
