Tours of the conservatory are currently on hold while our gardeners take care of the pruning and planting required over the winter months. New tour dates will be announced in February.
Join us for a tour of the Barbican's tropical conservatory.
Led by our resident gardeners Marta and Neil, you will explore the hidden delights of our 'Secret Garden' on the 60 minute tour while learning about its history from the people who tend this wonderful oasis every day.
The meeting point for our conservatory tour is on level 3, immediately outside the Garden Room. Please wait by the sign just before 11am and your guide will meet you there.
