Community

The location of our beloved estate is unique and provides residents a wealth of opportunities to enjoy the benefits of city living or become involved in community activities. Barbican residents are involved in many bodies and organisations. There is a plethora of websites devoted to these. Barbican Library is a great starting point when looking for information on local activities.

If you have an interest in gardening or horticulture you should consider getting involved in the Barbican Wildlife Group (contact via Paula Tomlinson on 7628 3557 or paula@johnandpaula.com) or Barbican Horticultural Society (information@barbicanhortsoc.co.uk). Alternatively you may want to check out the website of the Friends of City Gardens.

Residents interested in donating some of their original Barbican fixtures and fittings for further reuse or perhaps looking for replacement items, should visit the Barbican Salvage site.

The Barbican Centre now has a special residents page where you can download the latest edition of Podium newsletter and find out about exclusive special offers for residents from the Barbican Centre.

Residents living in the Ward of Cripplegate may want to keep up to date with their Alderman and Common Councilmen here. The Ward Club website can be found here. If you are unsure whether you live in Cripplegate or Aldersgate, you can consult this ward map.

Our neighbors at the Golden Lane Estate have their own site that may be of interest to Barbican residents. A lively discussion forum for all things Barbican is Barbican Talk.

Neaman Practice website is a handy resource for managing your well-being. Did you know that you renew your regular prescriptions online!
