Thistle City Barbican: From the day it opened in 1982, London’s Barbican has divided opinion. A Grade II Listed building, it’s been hailed as a triumph of design - and voted the ugliest building in London. What isn’t in doubt, though, is its status as Europe's largest arts centre: home to the London Symphony Orchestra, it also plays host to all kinds of music, theatre, dance and exhibitions.

And whatever you have tickets for, there’s not much debate about the best place to stay, either. Thistle City Barbican is just a short walk away, so you won’t have far to go if you end up sitting through half-a-dozen encores or curtain calls. With 13 meeting rooms, the largest seating 120 theatre-style, Thistle City Barbican is an ideal venue for business meetings; we even provide a courtesy shuttle service to the City and its tube stations. And when you’re done watching the markets or listening to Mozart, our Otium Health & Leisure Club has all the facilities and equipment you need to relax and unwind. And who can argue with that?
