The Barbican Conservatory, London

Every Sunday, the Conservatory at the Barbican is open for visitors between 12:00 noon and 5pm. My visit today was nice and worth my while, yet not extraordinary.

Inside the Barbican building, the Conservatory is a chance to wander amongst tropical plants in central London and observe large Japanese carps swimming in interconnected ponds. However the  conservatory looks tired in places and many plant leaves are covered in chalky looking residual traces.  Here are the positive highlights I was able to find:
