    I went there last Monday, because I couldn't find anything else interesting to do and had a great experience. I learned a lot about Japanese architecture, culture, the way of thinking and daily life i...  more »

  • A cultural hub hosting exhibitions, workshops and talks. Always interesting, the unexpected here, top-notch curation, content and frequently changing events.
  • My first time at Barbican. I'm surprised that there are hardly any reviews. I managed to see "Vulgar"😍exhibition on it's last day and I have to say that 2nd time in a month I am disappointed that I had lefted it too late and I only saw it once. It's one of those exhibitions which make you think and look at things/life/cloths/people twice. I loved Mr Adam Phillips descriptions in every room. Suddenly everything make sence...Well done. If you want to catch up with the exhibition you need to go to Vienna...but there is a catch... will they translate it to german😉? I left smiling and sad wishing I could see it one more time. To Barbican: I found out about exhibition by chance...there are lots of people who are interested in fashion and in my eyes it wasn't promoted well enough.
  • Great variety of things to see. Nice atmosphere.
  • Very interesting
  • Very nice place

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
