Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS
The largest performing arts centre of its kind in Europe, the Barbican is a gift to the UK from the City of London Corporation and was opened by the Queen in 1982. Known for its striking, brutalist architecture, the Centre is once again the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company, which returned after a 12-year absence in 2013. It is also home to both the London Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the concert hall.
