Why locals recommend it
With a capacity of nearly 2,000, the hall is part of the largest performing arts complex in Europe. Home to the London Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, it has stunning acoustics. There’s a great atmosphere here because you’re surrounded by people who are here to see all kinds of things: music, dance, theater, film. If you’re booking a ticket to see the LSO, make sure you check for the free pre-LSO concerts. These are performed by excellent young artists from the nearby Guildhall School of Music.

Brutalist architecture. An almost utopian neighbourhood surround the Barbican Centre which houses all sort of art exhibitions, indie film screenings and events.

Great for a cultural day. Beautiful brutalism building. Inside you can find amazing expos, cinema, restaurants/coffee, theatre and a lovely palms garden on the top floor...! I love it
