Other Information

  • Cromwell Tower, along with the rest of the Barbican, was listed in 2001.
  • Cromwell Tower is named after Oliver Cromwell who overthrew Charles the First in the English Civil War and made himself Lord Protector.
  • The balconies of the tower slant outwards from the top to bottom reducing the impression of vertigo on those using them.
  • This was one of the joint three tallest residential towers in the U.K with its partners until the completion of Pan Peninsula in London's docklands in 2009.
