The Barbican

Midcentury-design lovers will be in their element at the Barbican, a conference and concert venue with residences attached—but also a lauded paean to brutalist architecture. The Queen declared it a "modern wonder of the world" when she opened it in 1982, and indeed it is a unique place to catch a matinee film or a performance from the London Symphony Orchestra (which is based here). Admire its architecture from its elevated urban garden.
