    Amazing conservatory housed at the Barbican Centre. It’s a great place to come to and walk around on Sunday as we did. Note that you do need to book tickets prior to arriving. They are free but I suppose they need to control numbers and traffic. It’s closed for most of the week for maintenance reasons but opens to the public a couple of times a week. This can be on varying days so do check the website in advance. Lovely plants and benched area to relax and breath in the fresh air. My personal favourite section was the chilli area. So many variations of chillies. Has inspired me to start growing my own!

    Need to reserve online in advance for a visit but it’s free. Good to have a walk if you don’t know where to go in London. Somes plants are withered and should have been taken better care, looks a bit sad TBH. But still a cute hidden gem in the city jungle.

    What a great way to spend an hour of your day at this totally lovely conservatory. What a tremendous joy to walk amongst the plants. Highly recommended. I especially enjoyed the succulent /cactus space. Café and toilets are available.

    I cannot believe I had never been here. It’s such a beautiful place in London, especially if you like plants and greenery in genera. It’s a small area but the walk is relaxing and comforting. I will go back!

    I had a lovely experience at the Barbican Conservatory looking at all the plants and spotting some tortoises 🐢 it was a very calming atmosphere and entry was an optional donation. You could buy drinks from inside and sit in the various seating areas and just relax! Highly recommend a visit
