Commuters from Barbican to the City and Central London will have very relaxing mornings, with a simple walk to Bank taking under 15 minutes, and the tube taking half that time. A tube journey into the West End will take you under 20 minutes, but you could equally walk it in just half an hour! Think how great that option will be on those summer evenings.
