Spraying at a Theatre

Here's a tip: In classical theatre, sitting in the front row is not always the best thing, if you don't like getting sprayed. These Italian looking fountains are in the inner courtyard of the Barbican Centre.

One of my mates and I decided to take a visit to the Barbican on a fine Summer's day. We went to see the "bold experiment" of the complex itself (very nice hanging plants on the apartment balconies), St Giles, and the home of the London Symphony. We figured we could also take a quick side trip to see St Bart's, renowned for it's age and architecture.

By the time we found our way through the complex we had no idea where we were, and couldn't get our bearings on a tube, bus, or tourist map. It was also about 80F and the whole place is mostly concrete (if I remember correctly, the water features are an "homage" to the gone/buried Barbican river?). We finally found a security guard at one of the offices who had an A to Z, and he showed us where we were and where St Bart's was (the complete opposite side).

We quickly discovered there was no way "through" the Barbican, you can enter and exit a few places, but basically have to go around it. So about an hour later, after the usual dead ends and wrong turns, we actually made it to St Bart's! Which was closed.
