Vendors comments

The Barbican is a really special place to live in. In addition to its location and amenities, the communal garden areas and sense of community among the residents makes living here easy and comfortable. It is so much more peaceful and quieter than we had imagined – and a great place to start a family! On a summer’s evening drinking and eating on the west facing balcony feels positively Mediterranean and is a great way to end the work day.
