Barbican - Visit the Conservatory

Barbican - Visit the Conservatory

Visit the second biggest Conservatory in London and explore this hidden tropical oasis.

For the first time, the Barbican Conservatory is open seven days a week.

As well as three ponds, the Conservatory houses more than 1,500 species of plants and trees. This includes a vibrant mix of species and ponds which are home to koi and ghost carp from Japan and America, with another pool providing a safe haven for terrapins.

So all visitors can enjoy the unique atmosphere of the Conservatory safely, we've removed seating and ask that people avoid activities like sketching, picnicking and photoshoots and follow the one way system while visiting. Please allow 20 minutes for your visit.

Admission is free. Please book in advance online.

If you're unable to attend, please contact to return your free tickets.

A limited number of day tickets are released for online booking from 9:30am each day.
