Barbican Conservatory in London, the second largest conservatory in London, the first being Kew Gardens

The Barbican Conservatory, in the capital’s heart, is the 2nd largest Conservatory in London, 23,000 square feet, 2000 different plants of plans and trees. Kew Gardens must be in first place. We spotted palms, a tree’s flowers and large fish which may well be the Koi Carp. Cactus and some exotic plants. It had a restaurant in the middle that had a faux lawn carpet and some archways to enter the area. Some coloured lights around the plants. An awful lot of people too, it is popular, probably because it’s not open all that often Sundays and some Bank Holidays. Check the Barbican website. Go up to Level 3 to access it.

Barbican in the Ward of Cripplegate

The Barbican is in the Ward of Cripplegate. Architects Chamberlin designed the complex, Powell & Bon. One of London’s biggest showcases of Brutalist architecture. There was a street called Barbican, so this is how it received its name. It was a trade area of merchants to do with the rag trade and other merchants. World War Two caused damage to the area significantly.  The Country Town and Planning Act 1947 enabled the local council to seize the day and buy the land and redevelop.
