About our venue

The Barbican Centre is a vast building comprising many different venues. There is ramped access from our main entrance at Silk Street to the Level G Foyer where lifts service all levels.

There is provision for wheelchair users and systems for the hard of hearing in all of our venues. 

Improvements to the accessibility of the Barbican Centre are being made all the time; since the creation of the Access Group in 2000, disabled visitors to the Centre have been consulted on many important projects.

You can find detailed information about access provisions in 'Accessing our venues'.
