The Barbican Conservatory? Few know about the Barbican and even fewer know that the concrete jungle that was build in the 70’s houses a hidden treasure; a glass-roofed, leafy sanctuary that features tropical plants and trees, birdlife and exotic fish. It’s the second biggest Conservatory in London – and it’s open to the public!
My husband shared excitingly that he had seen a new exhibition on at the Barbican centre called ‘Scandinavian Pain’. I had to tell him that this was in fact not the sign for the exhibition, but part of it, as installation art. The Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson’s new exhibition at the Barbican is set to surprise and intrigue you!
Whether you are trying to keep the kids busy for a low cost rainy afternoon, or planning something for a special treat, there’s something to satisfy every member of the family at the Barbican Centre in London.
