Blissful Barbican Apartment with Patio

Modernism and vintage style in central London. 1 king size double bedroom, 1 single bedroom, bathroom, and bright open living space with kitchen. Close to restaurants, pubs, shops and entertainment. Excellent transport access to the Underground and bus routes and walking distance to many London landmarks.

The Golden Lane Estate is listed by English Heritage as a rare example of English modernist architecture. The architects, Chamberlain Powell & Bonn would eventually go on to build the Barbican Arts Centre, just 5 mins walk away, boasting 3 cinemas, a concert hall, a theatre, restaurants, bars and cafes.

The apartment is within a short distance of Clerkenwell, London’s designer district, and Smithfield, which has a particularly good selection of restaurants, pubs and bars.

A few minutes walk will take you to St Paul’s Cathedral, the Millennium Bridge, the Tate Modern and the Globe Theatre on the river Thames south bank. Old Street “silicon” roundabout and Shoreditch are also in close proximity. Sunday is a chance to enjoy Colombia Road flower market and Spitalfields Market, both a leisurely stroll away.

The Golden Lane Estate has its own gym and swimming pool, as well as tennis and badminton courts. There is a Waitrose supermarket close by.

There are two Underground stations within very close proximity: Barbican (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan Lines) and Old Street (Northern Line). Farringdon British Rail station with frequent direct trains to Gatwick Airport is also within walking distance.

Local area recommendations & all the information you need to plan your stay


  1. This location is great! Very centrally located and close to the Barbican tube station - we immensely enjoyed the location and found it very easy to get around. The actual place was also great, with everything as described and in good order. You will enjoy this place quite well if you decide to book here. Something I learned about staying in some facilities that is different than a hotel - hand soap may not be available, so make sure you bring that. And if you are used to washrags, you may want to bring those as well (coming from the US I found that even some hotels do not have the small washrags I'm used to).


  2. Good apartment, well located in interesting area, all as described in listing. Would definitely return! Thanks.


  3. This is a wonderful small house near central London. Warmly recommended.


  4. A cozy two storey flat on convenient Barbican location close to public transport, about 30 minutes to Oxford Street by bus. Note this flat is managed by a property agency, so you have to fix a check in and check out time, and they hand over the key in person. The check out required someone to come at an appointed time to inspect the flat before handing over keys. This is stressful for someone who's rushing to get things packed and a bit inflexible, not like the easy check outs I'm used to on Airbnb. The flat is also on street level and you can hear people talking in the public courtyard. They had nice thoughtful touches like lots of plants inside the flat, chocolate and cookies. No liquid hand soap, just a mini bar soap. Be prepared for bedrooms and bathroom up the stairs if you have lots of luggage.


  5. Love Barbican and love this space. Very efficient, stylish and comfortable 2 bedroom. Easy access across the city, close to Waitrose and good dining options, quick walk to the Barbican, which just has so much to offer. We will definitely go back.


  6. Little gem in the heart of Barbican. Stayed here with my two teenage sons for a few nights, and we loved the thoughtfully decorated style, access to the city, and very livable space. We’d come back for sure!


  7. Our stay was smooth and easy. The team at UnderTheDoormat was very responsive to any questions we had and added small touches to make us feel welcome. The flat was beautiful with close links into town. Would stay here again.


  8. We really enjoyed staying in this flat: it was a quiet haven right in the middle of the city. (Waking up to views of green was an unexpected bonus!) Everything was very clean and well-organized, and the double bed is very comfortable (forgot to ask our other guest about the single he slept in). The flat is in a sixties block and there are lots of nice sixties touches in the furnishings. The more athletic members of the family were delighted to find a gym and pool on the doorstep. The only small thing I can think of to note is that the living-room blinds don't go down fully, or at least wouldn't for us, so if you wanted 100% privacy at night you might be disappointed. It wasn't a problem for us. Under the Doormat staff turned up to check us in and out just as arranged, and we'd be more than happy to stay there again.
