  • London
  • Barbican, a perfect example of modern and traditional architect in combination

    To the east of central London is the Barbican, which offers an excellent illustration of British architecture, both modern and traditional: the dizzying skyscrapers of the business district in the City of London which surrounds the Barbican are mixed with more traditional Victorian and older buildings.

    The Barbican is also an intellectual and cultural centre: its famous Barbican Centre, in the heart of the district, is one of Europe’s largest arts, theatre and concert hubs. It includes an art gallery, conference halls, a library, cinema and concert hall which is home to the London Symphony and BBC Symphony Orchestras.

    Also worth visiting: the Museum of London, which presents the capital’s history; St Bartholomew the Great, one of the oldest London churches.
