Barbican and Golden Lane

Designed by the post-war architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon, these City of London estates revitalised two neighbouring locations that had been heavily bomb-damaged during World War Two. Creating nearly three thousand homes, these estates now have listed status and are highly sought after places to live.

Learn about the architectural differences and continuities between the estates as well as the  housing designs that created light-filled spaces, communal gardens and leisure facilities all carefully designed to meet the needs of residents. The walk will also explore the piazzas and pedways that make this such as fascinating place to visit.
