Barbican lies towards the northern fringes of the City of London and is perhaps best known for its multi-arts performance and exhibition centre, which hosts a wide range of cultural events throughout the year. The Barbican area is just north of London Wall, a major route through the City of London, and just west of Moorgate and Liverpool Street. As well as the Barbican exhibition centre, the area is home to several other prominent London cultural institutions, including the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the Museum of London. As a result, the Barbican is a thriving and eclectic London location that combines commercial, cultural and residential activity to an extent uncommon, even by the standards of one the world’s great cities.
