Even when you enter the Barbican Centre it’s not completely obvious that there’s a tropical wilderness on the top that the public can visit for free.

There are exotic plants, birds and fish to spot and different levels to explore. Plus there’s a glass roof over it all making it a perfect place to visit on a rainy day.

See the official website for directions and opening times.
