Welcome

Welcome to my website about the Barbican Estate. I have been working on it for nearly 20 years and it is a bit of a labour of love.

A new fruit stall in Whitecross Street

Lovely fresh stuff. Don’t even think of stopping at Waitrose with their tasteless thawed-out fruit. The stall is usually open Tuesdays to Fridays. It is at the junction with Roscoe Street.

Great new cocktail bar and restaurant

‘The Long Lane’ next to the ever-reliable Apulia, opposite Smithfield Market. (Where Ask For Janice used to be) It opened in May 2022  I have tried it and it is well worth a visit.

If you live in the Barbican estate already, please also check out my website on Whitecross Street. Eat well inexpensively, and help local businesses to get back on their feet.
