Learn more about security considerations during your visit to the Barbican

Enhanced security measures are currently in place at the Barbican.

As part of these measures only one reasonably-sized bag (no larger than 32cm L x 18cm W x 22cm H) per person may be taken inside our venues and all bags may be searched by a member of our team.

Bags are not permitted in the Art Gallery for the duration of the current exhibition.

We ask that, where possible, visitors avoid bringing large bags to the Centre. If you do need to check bags into our free cloakrooms, we suggest arriving early. All bags deposited will be subject to search and random bag searches are also in operation.

Please also remember that belongings should not be left unattended at any time.

Thank you for your understanding – we look forward to welcoming you to the Barbican.
