Barbican tour: entrance from Moorgate
Barbican tour: entrance from Moorgate
This, it was pointed out, was the original entrance to the arts centre for visitors coming from Moorgate station. The route via the highwalks was neither easy to follow nor very inviting, so the new ground level entrance on Silk Street TQ3281 : The Barbican- late on an April afternoon was built in 2006.
A tour of the Barbican
Photos taken on a guided evening tour of the Barbican estate in central London. The whole of the 1960s/70s estate including the 1982 arts centre is now listed grade 2 as a group of buildings, and grade 2* as a park.

The enthusiastic and well informed guide pointed out many architectural features and references that are not obvious to the untrained eye. Much of what he said in detail can be found on the very detailed list description at LinkExternal link so there is no need to repeat it here.
