Barbican’s Hidden Treasure

Home to the London Symphony Orchestra, the Barbican is perhaps best known as Europe’s largest performing arts centre. But it’s also got its wild side—namely, a conservatory ranking second only to Kew. Inside you’ll find exotic fish and over 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees. It’s open to the public only on Sundays, when you can also enjoy an afternoon tea.
