About Barbican EC1

The City’s only large residential complex is the Barbican, a pretty ugly concrete ghetto built on heavily bombed Cripplegate area. It’s a market urban dystopia, comprising a maze of pedestrian walkways and underground car parks, pinioned by three 400-foot, 47-storey tower blocks-the tallest residential accommodation in Europe when they were built in the 1970s. The footballer George best, a resident in the following decade, described it as “like living in Colditz”.

The zone’s solitary pre-war building is the heavily restored early Tudor church of St Giles-without-Cripplegate in Barbican where Oliver Cromwell was married in 1620 and where John Milton is buried. Milton’s body was exhumed in 1793, his teeth knocked out as souvenirs and his corpse exhibited to the public until the novelty wrote off.

St Giles is now bracketed between a pair of artificial lakes and lies directly opposite the sole reason for venturing into this depressing complex- the Barbican Arts Centre, the “City’s Gift to the Nation”, which was formally opened in 1982 nearly thirty years after the first plans were drawn up. Even the arts centre has its drawbacks; not least an obtusely confusing layout that continues to prove user-repellent; just finding the main entrance on Silk street is quite a feat for most Londoners. Built in Barbican on nine levels, three of them subterranean, the complex contains a huge concert hall (home of the London Symphony orchestra), two theatres, a good three screen repertory cinema, a rooftop garden, a public library and an exhibition space, as well as housing the Guildhall school of Music and Drama and the (fee-paying) City of London School for Girls.
