First of all, Joseph is good vibes. I look forward to seeing him. Joseph always cleans very thoroughly, but today in particular, the flat was a mess because it's been a few weeks and my flatmate and I have both been feeling down. I came back and everything was spotless and it's just so nice. Thank you Joseph!

Agnieska and Julian were very personable, efficient and thorough, making sure that unloved kitchen appliances and hard to reach areas get a good clean. Highly recommend.

First impressions really good. A mature, thoughtful lady who arrives very punctually, works steadily - and takes the initiative to spot what needs doing. My handwoven Mexican rug looks much fresher after she washed it - we didn't realize it needed that treeatment she gave it. After many bad experinces with other cleaners sent by Housekeep (cancellations, lateness, disappearing after only one visit) it is a pleasure to find someone reliable

Local information about Barbican

Barbican, or 'the Barbican Estate', is a sprawling housing complex located within the City of London. The Barbican is home to over 2000 flats, houses and maisonettes in the EC1 area.

The area, formerly known as Cripplegate, was largely wiped out during the Blitz attacks of the Second World War. In the post-war years, there were extensive discussions about how to rebuild the area, which eventually resulted in the development of the now iconic Barbican Estate. The tower blocks and apartments that stand today were built during the 1960s and 1970s, and were originally targeted at city professionals. In the years since, the area has remained popular with city workers who are keen to live in Central London, just a stone's throw from the financial district.

Barbican is famous for its unusual Brutalist aesthetic, and is the home to multiple culturally significant organisations, including the Museum of London, the Barbican Centre and Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

The Barbican Estate has a population of 4000 people, which is over half of the population of the City of London district.

The Barbican tube station is serviced by the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines, with more transport options available at the nearby Farringdon, Moorgate, St. Pauls and Liverpool Street stations.
