Barbican Concert Hall

Concert Hall
Silk St
London, Greater London EC2Y 8DS


  • Get there before start time , especially for classical performances. Late entry may not be possible/ will annoy those already seated. One of the most pleasurable places to watch live music in London.
  • Enjoy the great acoustics of this place. It is perfect for the music venue.
  • Take some cough sweets. Always annoying to hear people coughing away during a quiet concert!
  • Sometimes good for watching concerts
  • LSO Concerts are excellent.
  • Head upstairs for a choice of bars with shorter queues
  • Incredible space to see a show. The whole venue is nice to explore. You could spend a whole day here.
  • The only good think about being inside the Barbican, is that you can't see the Barbican...
  • Good variety of concerts, hall seating is good but acoustics can be varied depending on where youre sitting... and what you are watching!
  • great space
  • Pop outside by the fountains when it gets a bit hot!
  • Smaller than I expected. I accidentally sat too close. Doesn't hurt to be further back.
  • One of my favourite places to see live music - so much atmosphere
  • Good value tickets
  • Digital Revolution. Walk down memory lane morelike! Wrote a version this on my C-64!!
  • A mediocre concert hall as part of an ambitious urban oasis. Do buy tickets for the LSO as they are excellent and great value.
  • Wonderful concert venue, had the chance to see Art Ensemble of Chicago
