The Barbican Conservatory, London


Inside the sprawling Brutalist structure of the Barbican, nature unexpectedly makes an appearance in the form of a tropical conservatory. Only open on Sundays and Bank Holidays (check before going though, just to be sure) this well-tended green oasis provides a space to pause before hitting the pavements again.
