An Afternoon at The Barbican

Last summer I thought I’d finally take a trip down to The Barbican to see their conservatory. I’ve been wanting to go to see the garden room for months, so once I knew I had a Sunday free I made plans to go and wander around.

The conservatory is on the third floor of The Barbican and houses hundreds of plants, as well as a cactus room and small ponds. There is an area within the plants that is set up for afternoon tea, which looked amazing!

I found this (not-so-little) space so relaxing. It’s lovely to find such a peaceful space in the middle of the city, and being able to see so many plants and people enjoying them was lovely. I’m already looking forward to visiting again.

The Barbican is located by St. Pauls and Moorgate underground stations and is open mon-fri. The conservatory is open on Sundays from 12pm-5pm and is free to enter. If you would like the afternoon tea this needs booking in advance and costs £35pp. More information can be found here.
This post is not sponsored, I just love this space and think it’s so relaxing! I will be making sure to visit again this year for a relaxing day out.
