The Barbican Estate is a city within a city. A Brutalist construction built after WWII that shows that The City of London has its peaceful side.
Find yourself in a countryside environment and explore a neo-classical mansion at Osterley Park and House, in West-London.
Looking for the perfect day trip from London? Take the train from King's Cross Station and you'll be in beautiful historic York in no-time.
