Cultural Hub


The London Symphony Orchestra is working with other cultural organisations in the City of London to form the Cultural Hub, a creative alliance to build upon the City’s already internationally acclaimed cultural offer.

What is the Cultural Hub?

A unique collection of arts, cultural and educational organisations. It is a partnership of: 

We will work closely with a range of providers from the City’s visitor and cultural sectors through the City’s Hotels, Attractions and Retail Network (CHARN) and City Culture Network (CNN).

Where is the Cultural Hub?

In the north of the Square Mile, centred on the Barbican Centre complex and running from Farringdon in the east to Moorgate in the west, and from LSO St Luke’s in the north to St Paul’s Cathedral in the south.

Why is it of interest?

  • It is designed to be the newest cultural destination in London.
  • By 2018 – when Crossrail opens – it will be one of the most accessible cultural areas in London. The new Crossrail stations of Farringdon (with Thameslink) and Moorgate /Liverpool Street are either side of the Cultural Hub.
  • Over 1 million additional visitors a year are expected from 2018 onwards.
  • It will have direct access to all London’s mainline stations and London’s three major airports.
  • A potential new Museum of London will be opening at West Smithfield, which will be an unrivalled experience welcoming even more people and displaying even more of the museum's collection.
  • A study is currently underway to assess the feasibility of building a new centre for music in the city. Led by the Barbican, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and commissioned by the Government and the GLA, the outcome of the study will be published in due course.
  • There are comprehensive highways, streetscapes and public and open spaces proposals.

Who is interested?

  • Tourists and visitors from Greater London, the UK, and the rest of the world
  • Potential cultural and commercial occupiers and creative industries partners
  • Potential investors and funders
  • City businesses, office workers and residents
  • Schools and students

Timescales

The Cultural Hub will take shape in a series of developments over the next 10–15 years.
