The Barbican is London and Europe's largest arts and events venues available to hire, showcasing the latest art, film, music, theatre, dance and education in one multi-user venue.

The Garden Room, The Conservatory and The Conservatory Terrace can be used together or independently of each other. Following a refurbishment in 2013, all 3 spaces are now interconnecting to expand the maximum reception capacity to 650.

The Garden Room is a stunning conference and catering venue within The Barbican with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Barbican Lakeside, St Giles Church and the cityscape of London.

The spectacular Conservatory is a joy to discover, a hidden tropical oasis in the heart of the city which is home to exotic fish and over 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees. We host a wealth of parties, conference catering and weddings. Such a talking point for all!

High up under the glass roof of the Centre, the Conservatory Terrace overlooks the tropical treetops of the Conservatory. A fantastic flat floor area with one hell of a back drop for more intimate events.

Searcys is on site catering partner and has been since the 1990s; providing personalised, seasonal and innovative menus with locally sourced ingredients.

Just 5 minute walk from Barbican and Moorgate stations and excellent proximity to main line stations Liverpool Street and Farringdon.
