London Barbican Hall is a trending venue that specialises in entertainment, arts and live music. It is located in the Barbican Center in London. With almost 2000 people seating capacity, it hosted a great variety of artists and performers since its opening in 1982. The Barbican Hall is a home to BBC Symphony Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra.
The Barbican Hall is easily accessible by underground, road and rail.
By train and tube: The Barbican Hall is located very close to few London Underground stations: Moorgate, St.Paul’s and Barbican. If you would like to travel by train, the nearest stations are Farringdon and Liverpool Street.
By car: The distance and the route will be based on your departure point. When you arrive at the destination, you will see four car parking lots on Silk Street and Beech Street.
International: you can easily get to Barbican from the international airport. When landing at Heathrow, take Heathrow Connect and jump a Hammersmith & City tube line, or take the Heathrow Express and follow the same logic.
The parking lots are accessible via Beech Street tunnel or via Silk Street. The parking is open 24/7, and you can either pay on site it or pre-book online.
Access for people with special needs
In 2013 the venue was awarded a silver level in Attitude is Everything. This is one of the few venues that continue to improve their accessibility for the disabled people. There is a ramp next to the main entrance at Silk Street. The venue also provides accommodation for people with hearing issues and ensures accessible seating for wheelchair users. Even more than that, visitors who joined Barbican’s Access Membership scheme can inform the hall about their access requirements in advance, get cost reduction on tickets, and receive information in alternative formats.
