Barbican is an area in the City of London. It is located between Aldersgate Street and Moorgate, to the north from London Wall. The name Barbican usually refers to one of the following (all are in the same place):

  • Barbican Centre – a large performing arts complex which consists of several concert halls and venues, including Barbican Hall, Barbican Theatre, Barbican Art Gallery, The Curve, Barbican Film, Barbican Library, several conference halls, exhibition halls, and restaurants.
  • Barbican Estate – a complex of residential buildings.
  • Barbican Tube Station – a station served by 3 tube lines: Circle, Hammersmith & City, and Metropolitan. It is between Moorgate and Farringdon on each of these lines. In the past (before Barbican was built) this station was named Aldersgate Street or just Aldersgate.
