Information for your visit

Enhanced security measures are currently in place.

As part of these measures only one reasonably-sized bag (no larger than 32cm L x 18cm W x 22cm H) per person may be taken inside our venues and all bags may be searched by a member of our team.

Please note: Policies for the Art Gallery differ:

For Trajal Harrell: Hoochie Coochie all Large Bags, Rucksacks, Backpacks and Luggage must be deposited in the cloakroom.

For Basquiat: Boom for Real ALL BAGS must be deposited in the cloakroom.

Please check the exhibition information page or call the box office for full details or gallery policies.

We ask that, where possible, visitors avoid bringing large bags to the Centre. 

If you do need to check bags into our free cloakrooms, we suggest arriving early.

All bags deposited will be subject to search and random bag searches are also in operation.

Please also remember that belongings should not be left unattended at any time.

Thank you for your understanding – we look forward to welcoming you to the Barbican.
