Discover the vast, bold and brutal Barbican estate on our 90 minute Architecture Tours.

Led by our expert guides, the private tour takes you across the Barbican Centre and surrounding Brutalist estate. You’ll explore the site’s little-known nooks and crannies, venturing through criss-crossing highwalks, leafy courts and sweeping crescents, with plenty of stops along the way, including:

  • Our tranquil Lakeside Terrace
  • The striking form of the Sculpture Court
  • The trio of soaring residential towers
  • Ruins along the original London Wall
  • And more…

You’ll learn about the vision and ambition behind the design, and gain insight into the past, present and future of the site.

Capturing the staggering scale, other-worldly compositions and iconic forms of the Barbican, the tour will leave you looking at the centre and estate from a new perspective.
