Barbican Conservatory, London

Barbican Conservatory

Home to over 2000 species of tropical plants and trees (some of which are rare and endangered in their native habitat), Barbican Conservatory is the second largest conservatory in London. 

With a vibrant mix of temperate and arid types, the plants range from areas as diverse as the rocky deserts and bushland of South Africa to the coastline of Brazil.

The conservatory is like none other I’ve ever visited, especially striking due to its brutalist architecture – We loved photographing those deep green leaves against the concrete! 

Entry to the conservatory is free, however as it’s open only a few Sunday’s a month it’s worth double check opening times before you visit!
