The Barbican enjoys a central location in the Square Mile, the Capitals financial district.
A true icon of design, the Barbicans visionary apartments are set around beautifully landscaped gardens with views of the surrounding city. If cultures your thing, youll be spoilt for choice the Barbican Centre (home to world class art & photography exhibitions, cinema, theatre and music), the Barbican Public Library, the Museum of London and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama are all, literally, on your doorstep.
The architect host's sleek and minimalist style comes across in this newly furnished 2 bed apartment. The focus of the apartment is the sitting and dining room and a waiter window, leading to the kitchen. This room can be kept as an extra large sitting and dining area. When you need the area for sleeping, simply slide the panelled door across and open out the comfortable sofa bed. With a full wall of glass, this area opens out to a spacious balcony which overlooks the Barbican's gardens below.
The open kitchen is fully integrated with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, hob, oven and everything you'll need to prepare meals during your stay.
The bedroom is also bright and airy with a wall of windows making up one of its sides. There's a king size bed and bedside tables. Off this room is another small terrace.
The fully white tiled bathroom is completed with a countertop basin, heated hand rail and a bath (with wall-mounted shower over the bath).

You'll find many other restaurants and bars on nearby St John Street and the surrounding area. Head north and you'll reach Islington, to the west is Covent Garden and Oxford Street, southwards is St Paul's Cathedral and the River Thames.
