Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Barbican



This is the Barbican in the City of London. The Barbican is a residential estate built in the 60s and 70s. The complex also contains an arts centre with a range of theatre, music, art and film. Adjacent to the estate is the Museum of London, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the City of London school for girls.


You can walk through the centre and visit the cafe or sit by the water.

Today they had some props on show from the Royal Shakespeare Company. They were being used in an interactive display.








For a large residential estate, it always seems so quiet.

  1. I've only seen photos of the outside. By you? It is interesting to see the inner area. You can't go wrong with water.

  3. I have been close but never actually there. It does like quite a spooky place though. Don't quite know why.

  5. I'd start to watch out for zombies. Remember, they're attracted to noise ;)

  9. That Would be something to have an art exhibit right in your own apartment complex!

  10. The water is a nice feature for the residents who have a view of it. The Guthrie Theater here had a similar exhibit a couple years ago of props and also costumes used in some of their productions and I really enjoyed it.
